Norman Parkinson (1913-1990) was one of the Twentieth Century’s most celebrated fashion photographers. He pioneered epic storytelling in his images, taking portrait and fashion photography beyond the stiff formality of his predecessors and injecting an easy and casual elegance into the art. His photographs created the age of the supermodel and made him the photographer of choice for celebrities, artists, writers, and politicians. He was a permanent fixture at historic moments, photographing the British Royal Family, in private and public, as well as leading figures from the worlds of film, theatre, and music. In a career that spanned six decades, he dazzled the world and inspired his peers with sparkling inventiveness.
