Norman Parkinson Archive Newsletter | Winter 2014

In the past nine years the Norman Parkinson Archive has placed Parkinson’s work in over 40 exhibitions throughout the world. From Parkinson’s early days as a jobbing photographer for the Bystander to his final work with the glossy 1980s American society magazine Town & Country, no other photographer has so effectively moved with the times. Parkinson’s pictures have always had wide appeal. Cleverly shot, witty and often with a narrative Parkinson’s best pictures are unforgettable.  

Today Parkinson’s images are more popular than ever. We receive constant syndication requests from magazines, newspapers and book publishers. We also work with interior designers, art consultants and carefully selected lifestyle brands. Please contact the Archive if you would like more information on purchasing photographs or to arrange a consultation about a specific project.
