GORDON PARKS AT JACK SHAINMAN

“As a photographer, film director, composer, and writer, Gordon Parks (1912-2006) was a multi-disciplinary artist whose art and advocacy for social justice still resonates in contemporary culture.

“In collaboration with the Gordon Parks Foundation, this second half of I AM YOU at Jack Shainman Gallery will focus on some of Parks’ most celebrated and iconic imagery; demonstrating his abilities as a photographer and journalist who moved just as seamlessly documenting everyday life and injustice facing African-American families across the country, framing his subjects with compassion amidst unvarnished reality.”*

 

GORDON PARKSI AM YOU, through March 24.

JACK SHAINMAN GALLERY, 524 West 24th Street, New York City.
