Bertram Charles Percival Park (1883-1972)

Bertram Park was a portrait photographer whose work included British and European royalty. His photographs were widely used on British postage stamps, currency, and other official documents in the 1930s, and the source for two paintings by Walter Sickert. For example, Park provided the photograph of George VI on which the 4d Southern Rhodesian stamp was based.
In 1910, Bertram Park was one of the founders of the London Salon of Photography. In 1916, Park married the photographer Yvonne Gregory (1889-1970) at Hampstead and she became one of his principal models. They produced together a number of photographic books of the female nude.
