Norman Parkinson Photography

Cardin Hat over Paris. Queen, 1960

One of the great pioneers of fashion photography, Norman Parkinson is famous for his sense of style. Distinguished as one of the true innovators in his field, he pushed the boundaries by bringing the model out of the studio and onto the street. He set the model against unusual and daring backgrounds, such as the gritty working-class districts of London, and was a seminal influence on subsequent generations of fashion photogaphers.
