The unrivaled portfolio of one of the 20th century's great fashion photographers is examined in this survey featuring dazzling original prints from Parkinson's own archive From his first outdoor fashion shoot in 1935, Norman Parkinson's "moving pictures taken with a still camera" brought glamour and inventiveness to fashion photography. He set the New Look against the New York skyline, Quant dresses in swinging London, and Calvin Klein and Krizia in exotic locations from Tahiti to Tobago. "If a girl looks like a model, she is not for my lens," said Parks. He wanted energy and individuality, and found it in women like Wenda, the willowy actress he married in 1947, Celia Hammond, Jerry Hall, Iman, and Appollonia van Ravenstein. Parkinson's long association with Vogue and his numerous assignments for Harper's Bazaar, Queen, and other international magazines brought him fame and recognition?in return he gave the fashion world ineffable style and unforgettable images.

This much-anticipated monograph is the first to cover Richardson's complete career to date. It chronicles more than twenty years of photographs, advertising campaigns, and editorial work, revealing the evolution of Richardson's style, an unexpected mix of glamour and rawness. This two-volume set, which is separated into Richardson's fashion photography and celebrity portraiture, features more than 600 photographs and includes early, rarely seen magazine work from now-defunct publications; iconic and influential work for magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, The Face, i-D, Vice, and Interview; advertising work for brands such as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Chlo�, and A.P.C.; and very intimate studio portraits.
