Gordon Parks  “Outside Looking In, Mobile, Alabama, 1956”

Gordon Parks (Nov 30, 1912 – Mar 7, 2006) was a noted American photographer who became prominent in U.S. documentary photojournalism in the 1940s through 1970s—particularly in issues of civil rights, poverty and African Americans—and in glamour photography. He is best remembered for his iconic photos of poor Americans during the 1940s (taken for a federal government project).

The exhibition, full of beauty, suffering, pride and injustice, is both powerful and heartbreaking. Gazing upon the images, we’re struck by a combination of amazement and horror, at the strength these subjects possessed and the struggles they endured.
