NORMAN PARKINSON is the subject of a new photography exhibition, opening on Friday March 1 at the National Theatre and we have an exclusive preview to show you. The display coincides with centenary anniversary of the legendary image-maker's birth.
The showcase traces Parkinson's lengthy career - from his first photographs taken before World War II to shots created before his death in 1990. Visitors can expect to see portraits of the royal family, famous stage, screen, political and music stars, as well as pictures of his dramatic, elegant and pioneering fashion photography.
Parkinson is known for capturing the fashion world from the Forties through to the Nineties, introducing innovative juxtapositions, unexpected props and exotic locations. Read his friends and family's take on his impressive legacy in the March issue of Vogue, on sale now.
Lifework: Norman Parkinson's Century of Style opens on March 1 until May 12.
