The watchful eye of Norman Parkinson

Jesús Peiró y Norman Parkinson
Last March marked 100 years since the birth of the famous British photographer Norman Parkinson. So that´s why London held in his honor a great retrospective of his photographs until next May.

A unique opportunity to discover unpublished snapshots of this british gentleman, whose muse became his wife. Wanda and Norman soon become one of the coolest couples of the London of 50s and 60s.

Far from stifling limitations of a study, Parkinson opted to photograph the models in outdoor areas without artificial light, positioning himself as a pioneer of photography in motion. Norman hated the hieratic poses of the 50´s. Contemplating his legacy in black and white (almost all), it is easy to understand why it was the favorite portrait artist of the British royal family.
