 About the Exhibition

.

As Tiffany Hagler-Geard of  Abc News writes:
“Nov. 30, 2012, marks the 100th birthday of the late legendary photographer Gordon Parks.
Remembered for his Life magazine photo essays, Parks was also a filmmaker, composer and writer. He was the first African-American to work at Life magazine and the first to write, direct and score a Hollywood film, with “Shaft” in 1971.  The International Center of Photography in New York City is honoring Gordon Parks this year in an art-project installation piece, “Gordon Parks: 100,” up until Jan. 6.”

“. . . Gordon Parks: At 100, an exhibition of over 40 important photographs by the internationally acclaimed artist, Gordon Parks.

A preeminent photographer, poet, novelist, composer and filmmaker, Parks was one of the most prolific and diverse American artists of the 20th century. His photographs span from the social commentary of “American Gothic,” to Paris high fashion for Vogue. Parks’ photos chronicled the Civil rights movement in Life Magazine [ . . . ] As a filmmaker he was the first African American man to direct a major Hollywood production with the poignant memoir of his youth, “The Learning Tree,” and he broke new ground with a hip and provocative African American hero in “Shaft,” a movie that continues to be a pop culture classic.

For its initial exhibition of Parks’ work, Weinstein Gallery has selected images that reflect the photographer’s cross-cultural, poetic, and humanistic vision. This exhibition of more than 40 photographs encompasses Parks’ photographic evolution from rural Kansas and early years in St. Paul to his decades of work as a Life Magazine photographer . . .”
