We are feeling nostalgic today guys. We have a true photography master to share with you! Norman Parkinson is one of the twentieth centuries best known British fashion photographers, and as you can see from just a small sample of his portfolio below, his work is truly breathtaking. Parkinson was active for over 50 years, and was responsible for taking portrait and fashion photography beyond the stiff formality of his predecessors and injecting an easy and casual elegance – as well as humour – into his images. From 1935 to 1940 he worked for Harper’s Bazaar and The Bystander magazines before serving as a reconnaissance photographer over France for the Royal Air Force. From 1945 to 1960 he was employed as a portrait and fashion photographer for Vogue, following on to be Associate Contributing Editor of Queen magazine. His photographs of celebrities, artists, actors and the British Royal Family are known throughout the world and have become icons of twentieth century style.
