Gordon Parks: Collected Works

Study Edition

Edited by Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr., Paul Roth. Text by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Deborah Willis, Maurice Berger, Barbara Baker Burrows, Paul Roth, Gordon Parks.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Gordon Parks: Collected Works.'A self-taught polymath, Parks chronicled the African-American experience and retold his own personal history
This five-volume collection surveys five decades of Gordon Parks’ (1912–2006) photography. It is the most extensive publication to document his legendary career. Widely recognized as the most important and influential African-American photographer of the 20th century, Parks combined a unique documentary and artistic style with a profound commitment to social justice.
Working first for the Farm Security Administration and later for Life magazine, he specialized in extended-narrative picture stories on difficult subject matter. Covering crime, poverty, segregation, the politics of race and class, and controversial personalities, Parks became legendary for his ability to meld penetrating insight with a lyrical aesthetic. He was thus able to introduce a broad and diverse public to people, issues and ideas they might otherwise have ignored. Parks was remarkably versatile, traveling the world to photograph news events and fashion, as well as the worlds of art, literature, music, theater and film. Later in life, he reconceived his vision in fundamentally personal and poetic terms, producing color photographs that were allusive rather than descriptive, symbolic rather than literal.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Conscientious Photography Magazine

The genius of Gordon Parks was contained in his burning desire for pictures, which was coupled with the fact that he believed in something, namely the simple idea that everybody deserves to live a fulfilled life, whatever the circumstances.

Black History told through the Collected Works of Gordon Parks

Black History told through the Collected Works of Gordon Parks

“I’m not angry now because I’ve said what I had to say and the way I wanted to say it,” Gordon Parks said towards the end of his life. “I’ve said it through photography. I’ve said it in books. I’ve said it in films. I say it in music. I say it in poetry. No, I wouldn’t want to see any other boy or girl suffer what I’ve suffered. But, if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have come another way.” Featured image, “Woman and Dog in Window, Harlem, New York” (1943), is reproduced from Volume I of Steidl and The Gordon Parks Foundation’s stupendous, affordable, 1360-page, five-volume Gordon Parks: Collected Works (Study Edition), a staff pick for Black History Month and beyond. continue to blog
