The National Theatre is celebrating a century of Norman Parkinson’s beautiful and highly influential work with a collection of his most famous photographs.
Cellardoor recently paid the exhibition a visit and was impressed and inspired by the late photographer’s iconic work. It showcases images spanning from his early career in the 1930’s up until his death in the 1990’s, including portraits of movie stars, musicians and royals, as well as his pioneering images for Vogue. Parkinson’s use of unusual props and far flung locations revolutionised modern fashion photography, making him one of the most important British photographers of the twentieth century.
The exhibition runs until the 12th May 2013 and pays a must see tribute to this seminal fashion photographer’s remarkable career.
