Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family

"What I want, what I am, what you force me to be, is what you are." This headline begins a remarkable text by Gordon Parks', published alongside his cover photoessay for the March 8, 1968 issue of Life magazine, reproduced here from Steidl's 2013 Studio Museum exhibition catalog, Gordon Parks: Harlem Story. Parks continues, "For I am you, staring back from a mirror of poverty and despair, of revolt and freedom. Look at me and know that to destroy me is to destroy yourself. You are weary of the long hot summers. I am tired of the long hungered winters. We are not so far apart as it might seem. There is something about both of us that goes deeper than blood or black and white. It is our common search for a better life, a better world. I march now over the same ground you once marched. I fight for the same things you sill fight for. My children's needs are the same as your children's. I too am America. America is me. It gave me the only life I know—so I must share in its survival. Look at me. Listen to me. Try to understand my struggle against your racism. There is yet a chance for us to live in peace behind these restless skies."

Steidl

STEIDL is led by Gerhard Steidl, who began working as a designer and printer in 1967 and started his own photo book program in 1996. Today, some of the world’s most renowned photographers and artists are part of the STEIDL program. What began as a small enterprise has evolved into one of the finest and most distinguished printing and publishing companies in the world. The STEIDL program is unique in that all titles are designed and printed under the same roof; Gerhard Steidl himself oversees every step of the production, from layout to printing.

Contemporary Figurative Painting

Contemporary Figurative PaintingOver the past century, the Constructivists, Futurists, Dadaists and Conceptualists all announced their intention to kill painting, and indeed the death of painting continues to be championed and dissected by such contemporary critics as Douglas Crimp and Yve-Alain Bois. And yet… today, figure painting is experiencing an unprecedented revival.

Greenlight Bookstore
BOOKSTORES | MUSEUM SHOPS
Greenlight Bookstore

In 2008, the venerable Brooklyn community organization known as the Fort Greene Association commissioned a survey to find out what kinds of retail options local residents thought were missing from their changing neighborhood. Across all demographics of income level, ethnicity and background, the number one answer was “a bookstore.” In September of that year, more than 300 locals came out to support the bookstore plan. Colson Whitehead and local residents gave speeches, and the event was covered in the New York Times . At the party, owners Rebecca Fitting and Jessica Stockton Bagnulo launched their Community Lender Program, in which individuals loaned the store $1000 or more in order to help the store get started. Since Greenlight’s doors opened in 2009, Jessica, Rebecca and their staff have put down roots, and settled into a community that said they wanted a bookstore, then helped to make it happen. Today, Greenlight carries a wide and lovingly curated selection of books, and keeps up an extremely ambitious calendar of events. >>visit bookstore website
