Lifework: Norman Parkinson's Century of Style at National Theatre

Regarded as the father of modern fashion photography, 2013 marks the centenary of Norman Parkinson's birth.

Many of the tropes that are now commonplace in print and online images exotic locations, unexpected props and weird juxtapositions were introduced in the extraordinary photographs he took before and after the Second World War.

Beyond the glamour that for many defines his work, he was also an incisive and skilful portrait photographer. This exhibition covers all aspects of his long career until his death in 1990.
