Happy Birthday Sir Parkinson

Did you know, he made his own brand of sausages called Porkinsons…

From his early days as a photographer up to his death he remained one of the foremost British portrait and fashion photographers. And today would have been his 100th. His work revolutionised the world of British fashion photography in the ’40s by bringing his models from the rigid studio environment into a far more dynamic outdoor setting. Humour played a central role in many of his photographs which often included himself. He photographed top models of the day, including the likes of Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton

I will never get bored of his work. I really enjoyed the exhibition put on by his former assistant Angela Williams, that I visited last year at the Bristol Mshed, and I reaallyyyyy hope I can visit another one soon.

Below are a couple of my favourite images, including one of the man himself!
