The Netherlands, Amsterdam Gallery Vassie

Norman Parkinson (21.04.1913-15.02.1990) was born in London and educated at Westminster School. Parkinson, who worked for instance with Vogue and Queen Magazine, was a celebrated portrait- and fashion photographer. His work, following the lead of Martin Munkacsi at Harper's Bazaar, revolutionised the world of British fashion photography in the '40s by bringing his models from the rigid studio environment into a far more dynamic outdoor setting.
