Norman Parkinson is regarded as the father of modern fashion photography. Many of the tropes that are now commonplace in the images we see every day in newspapers or on websites – exotic locations, unexpected props, weird juxtapositions – were introduced in the extraordinary images he made before and after the Second World War. Beyond the glamour that for many defines his work, he was also an incisive and skilful photographer. This exhibition, which will cover all aspects of his long career, marks his centenary year.
In association with Corbis, the National Theatre's Photographic Images Partner.
