SewStylish visits Norman Parkinson

21 July 2006 by Billy

“I was completely blown away.

Entering the two small rooms which housed the display, I counted 25 of his photographs. A small display perhaps, but each and every one of them was absolutely beautiful.

The way in which Parkinson used the landscape to bring out the beauty of the subject is astonishing. But Parkinson doesn’t restrict himself to conventionally beautiful landscapes; the Grand Canyon or a Scottish mansion provide as dramatic a backdrop as the New York skyline or a rainswept Parisian street.”

Norman Parkinson: Portraits in Fashion continues at the Lady Lever Art Gallery until 24 September 2006.
