Andrew Besley Collection (2847 Items)

The Besley Collection brings together images taken in Cornwall by professional photographer Andrew Besley.

Andrew built an international reputation producing stock library photographs, contributing to photo libraries around the world. He also contributed to the national press, capturing members of the Royal Family, politicians and celebrities. Andrew moved to west Cornwall in 1968 and was responsible for images that accompanied breaking news, such as the Fastnet yachting disaster of 1979.

Andrew's photographs document community life, historic news events, and celebrity visits to Cornwall. In creating images for his stock library Andrew widely photographed both the natural and built environment, including stately homes, gardens and coastal scenes. The Collection provides a valuable record of Cornish life and documents changes in fashions, lifestyles and landscapes since the 1970's.
