Norman Parkinson
Norman Parkinson / Fashion Photography
Sep 19 – Dec 13, 2020
Fondazione Bisazza
Vicenza, Italy

The retrospective Fondazione Bisazza retraces 20 years of Norman Parkinson’s fashion photography, with four other internationally celebrated photographers: Milton H. Greene, Terence Donovan, Terry O’Neill, and Jerry Schatzberg.

British photographer Norman Parkinson (1913–1990) was one of the pioneers of 20th century fashion photography. Parks, as he was affectionately known, pushed beyond the traditional bounds of fashion photography in his work for some of the leading magazines – Harper’s Bazaar, Queen and Vogue. He photographed models outside the studio, in everyday settings, on streets, beaches and in exotic destinations, always injecting a strong dose of British humor into his work.

Curated by Cristina Carrillo de Albornoz and organized by Fondazione Bisazza with Iconic Images, the show portrays not only the spirit of change sweeping the times (1948–1968), but also a new style of photography and a way of representing women, in fashion and portraits.
