A retrospective of the work of fashion photographer Norman Parkinson, with images spanning from his early work of the 1930s up until his death in 1990. Having introduced the concept of exotic locales, bizarre props and visual juxtapositions – basically the building blocks of modern couture campaigns – Parkinson is regarded as the father of modern fashion photography.
