Norman

Norman Parkinson was a celebrated English portrait and fashion photographer.

“He never used artificial lighting and he was able to integrate the models on the street in motion.”

Bringing fashion outdoor, there is a sense of freedom in his photographs, and somehow I feel more optimistic when I look at them. Casual gestures are often featured in his work, so as to explore and capture more of the accidents/unexpected moments which had been missing from fashion photography in the 40s.  His photographs reveal a certain freshness and liveliness through the carefree postures of the models, as if there was still some hope in this world.
