Holiday Gift Staff Pick 'The New Tide' presents Gordon Parks' early work, 1940–1950

Best known for his searing LIFE magazine documentary photo essays on poverty and American civil rights, photographer, filmmaker, writer and musician Gordon Parks was also one of the twentieth century's great fashion photographers. Reproduced from The New Tide—published to accompany the National Gallery of Art's current exhibition—this photograph of Parks' wife, Sally Alvis Parks, a model and hat designer, was shot for the cover of the December 1947 Christmas issue of Chicago-based Circuit's Smart Woman magazine. Geared toward an African-American audience, Smart Woman was "designed to attract the new, postwar woman. [It was] intelligent, sharp, consumer-conscious, and geared to self-representation through fashion." See our complete 2018 Holiday Gift Guide here!
