Heralded as a true innovator of fashion photography, pushing the boundaries of the day by bringing the model out of the studio and onto the street, Norman Parkinson is famous for his sense of style and glamour. He set the model against unusual and daring backdrops, such as the gritty working-class districts of London, and was a seminal influence on subsequent generations of fashion photographers. This book is a lavish visual portrait of Parkinson's long career, from the 1930s through the 80s. His iconic photographs for Vogue, Queen, and Harper's Bazaar are reproduced alongside a trove of previously unpublished fashion work.
