Portraits in Fashion

Portraits in Fashion
by Robin Muir and Iman

New and updated hardback edition with additional images. Featuring original colour photographs and black and white prints from Parkinson's own archive. Foreword by Iman. From his first outdoor fashion shoot in 1935, Norman Parkinson's "moving pictures taken with a still camera" brought glamour and inventiveness to fashion photography.​

He set the New Look against the New York skyline, Quant dresses in swinging London, and Calvin Klein and Krizia in exotic locations from Tahiti to Tobago. "If a girl looks like a model, she is not for my lens," said "Parks". He wanted energy and individuality, and found it in "top girls" like Wenda, the willowy actress he married in 1947, Celia Hammond, Jerry Hall, Iman and Appollonia van Ravenstein.
Parkinson's long association with Vogue, and his numerous assignments for Harper's Bazaar, Queen and other international magazines, brought him fame and recognition. In return he gave the fashion world ineffable style and unforgettable images. This timely new edition is updated to feature additional iconic Parkinson images, including a striking collection of Audrey Hepburn to coincide with the National Portrait Gallery's Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon exhibition in the UK. It is an impressive examination of an unrivalled twentieth-century photographic portfolio.

Author Robin Muir is a curator and writer on photography. He has curated major exhibitions of work by John Deakin, Michael Cooper and Terence Donovan, as well as the Snowdon Retrospective in 2000 and Vogue's centenary exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. He has also mounted several collections of fashion photography drawn from the archives of Vogue, for which he worked as a picture editor. He is the archivist of the Terence Donovan Archives. His other publications include A Maverick Eye: The Street Photography of John Deakin and (with Robin Derrick) Unseen Vogue: The Secret History of Fashion Photography.
