Norman Parkinson (1913–1990) was a great British fashion and portrait photographer. He brought fashion to unique locations all over the world. He helped models such as Celia Hammond, Grace Coddington, and Jerry Hall rise to fame. Hall first collaborated with him in 1975, when she modeled evening gowns at Versailles. Later that year, she reunited with Parkinson for a British Vogue editorial under editor-in-chief Beatrix Miller.
Norman Parkinson captured these photos of Jerry Hall for Vogue in 1975. The location is the former Soviet Union, then a verboten Communist territory behind the Iron Curtain. Jerry Hall discussed the shoot in an interview with the Financial Times Magazine
This was in the mid-1970s, and we had to travel around with tourist guides, and they were taking our film. Parks was worried they might not develop the film right, so he asked me to stuff some down my pants, which I did – I was very young. Anyway, we got the film back and then he said to me afterwards, Actually, the Russians developed the film even better than we did over here and we needn’t have bothered.
