“I like to make people look as good as they’d like to look, and with luck, a shade better.”
Last week I visited the exhibiton of the photographs of Norman Parkinson in Gallery Vassi in Amsterdam. Gallery Vassi is a beautiful little gallery in the centre of Amsterdam. The work of Norman Parkinson has never been exhibited in The Netherlands before.
Norman Parkinson became famous for his iconic sense of style and glamour, his unexpected and unique approach, bringing a freshness, to the sometimes staid genres of fashion and portrait photography.
He worked for publications including, Vogue Magazine, Queen, Life, Town & Country and Harper’s Bazaar, and these images are shown here alongside a number of previously unseen images.
I really love his photographs and I like to tell you to go to this great exhibition!
