One of the great pioneers of fashion photography, Norman Parkinson is famous for his sense of style and glamour. Heralded as one of the true innovators in his field, he pushed the boundaries of the day by bringing the model out of the studio and onto the street. He set the model against unusual and daring backdrops, such as the gritty working-class districts of London, and was a seminal influence on subsequent generations of fashion photogaphers.

Norman Parkinson: A Very British Glamour surveys Parkinson's long career from the 1930s through the 1980s. In a unique collaboration with the Norman Parkinson archives in London, his iconic photographs for Vogue, Queen, and Harper's Bazaar are reproduced alongside a trove of previously unpublished fashion work. The classics of Parkinson's career are also shown here, providing the full breadth of his career.
