Norman Parkinson

If you keep your eye on Google doodles (or you know your photographers) you might be aware that Sunday would have been the 100th birthday of Norman Parkinson. Parkinson is one of my all-time photographic heroes. His images helped to drag fashion photography into a new era, and he had a superb knack for capturing off-beat, playful portraits. On Sunday BBC Four showed a fantastic documentary charting his life and work - worth looking up on iPlayer if you have the inclination. Happy birthday Norman.
