This impressive examination of an unrivaled 20th-century photographic portfolio is filled with original color photographs and black-and-white prints from Parkinson's own archives From his first outdoor fashion shoot in 1935, Norman Parkinson's "moving pictures taken with a still camera" brought glamor and inventiveness to fashion photography. He set the New Look against the New York skyline, Quant dresses in swinging London, and Calvin Klein and Krizia in exotic locations from Tahiti to Tobago. "If a girl looks like a model, she is not for my lens," said "Parks." He wanted energy and individuality, and found it in "top girls" like Wenda, the willowy actress he married in 1947, Celia Hammond, Jerry Hall, Iman, and Appollonia van Ravenstein. Parkinson's long association with Vogue, and his numerous assignments for Harper's Bazaar, Queen, and other international magazines, brought him fame and recognition. In return he gave the fashion world ineffable style and unforgettable images.

Norman Parkinson (1913-1990) is one of the greatest and most influential photographers of the twentieth century. Beginning in the 1930s his style of work helped define the look of each subsequent decade (including the New Look of Paris in the '50s and Swinging London of the '60s) and his impact on his followers was immense. Parkinson gained recognition in his early years revolutionising photography by moving female models from the static, serious and controlled environment of the photographic studio to real-life locations and exotic surroundings. This dynamic and spontaneous style garnered the attention of numerous fashion magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and Town & Country, earning Parkinson international recognition. His photographs helped create the age of the supermodel and made Parkinson the photographer of choice for fashion designers, artists and writers, musicians and actors, and British royalty. In a career that spanned six decades, Parkinson dazzled the world and inspired his peers with sparkling inventiveness as a portrait and fashion photographer. His achievements were recognised by the Queen of England when, in 1981, he was awarded a C.B.E. (Commander of the British Empire). In that same year he was also honoured with a major retrospective exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. SELLING POINTS: * One of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century * A collection of Norman Parkinson's greatest works, in the fields of fashion, celebrity, royalty and portraiture * Featuring many iconic images of famous faces including Audrey Hepburn, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Jean Seberg, Jerry Hall and many more * A long overdue introduction into the work of a genius of photography 94 b/w images

Fashion, celebrity, stars from every walk of life - all have posed before Norman Parkinson's lens. Parkinson brought about a seismic shift in the world of fashion photography; gone were the stiff poses and awkward formality of the twentieth century's early years. He ushered in an era of relaxed elegance, where the dialogue between model and photographer can be felt at a glance. Few photographers boast more high-calibre credentials, as he photographed the Royal Family, Audrey Hepburn, The Beatles, Twiggy, David Bowie and many more. This book collects Parkinson's iconic work from the 1960s. While he was the most celebrated fashion photographer of his day, Parkinson has enjoyed surprisingly few exhibitions. This leaves a vast wealth of photos that have yet to be seen by the public. With a considerable number of never-before-published images, as well as numerous outtakes and contact sheets, this book is the first in a series that aims to celebrate Parkinson's lasting legacy and his dedication to his craft. SELLING POINTS: * The first in a series of books examining Norman Parkinson's work by decade * Curated by Terence Pepper, OBE and archivist Alex Anthony * Includes various essays from collaborators, assistants, models and many other affiliates of this top photographer * Features several previously unpublished photographs, contact sheets and outtakes 200 colour, 200 b/w images

For more than fifty years, Norman Parkinson was one of Britain's leading exponents of fashion and portrait photography, as well as one of very few British photographers whose reputation carried throughout Europe and across the Atlantic. This retrospective of his work, edited and with a text written by Martin Harrison and published with the full cooperation of Norman Parkinson's estate, is the first serious attempt to reappraise his contribution to twentieth-century culture. Parkinson's career was varied: beginning in the Modernist movement of the 1930s, he broke new ground in fashion photography with his images of spontaneous movement for Harper's Bazaar. In 1939, he moved to British Vogue and documented the war years from his farm in the English countryside. His first stay in New York in 1949 signalled the beginning of his international travels and an increasingly cosmopolitan style of photography in the 1950s. When the mood changed in the early 1960s Parkinson was approaching fifty years of age and his exuberant and highly individual response to the London scene for Queen presents a markedly different view from that of Bailey, Avedon or Newton. He continued to work for Vogue until 1976, when a move to Town & Country in New York heralded a renaissance of his career. That, and his acclaimed portraits of well-known figures, including the Royal Family, further boosted his international reputation.
