Lifework: Norman Parkinson's Century of Style

  • March 24, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 National Theatre exhibition will cover all aspects of his long career until his death in 1990.

In association with Corbis, the National Theatre’s Photographic Images Partner

Meeting Point: 12.30pm in front of the National Theatre followed by drinks and snacks

Closest tube: Waterloo

    Hi guys, as the times were not too convenient for everyone we thought it may be wiser to reschedule this event on a date when more members can attend. Please update your RSVP accordingly and we hope you can join us next Sunday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
