GORDON PARKS: Centennial Honoring the Legendary African American Photographer.
"Gordon Parks is the most important black photographer in the History of Photojournalism. Long after the events that he photographed have been forgotten, his images will remain with us, testaments to the genius of his art, transcending time, place and subject matter."- Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Gordon Parks, the Howard Greenberg Gallery in collaboration with the Gordon Parks Foundation will present two simultaneous exhibitions of his work. Contact: Gordon Parks, Ralph Ellison, and "Invisible Man" curated by Glenn Ligon and Gordon Parks: Centennial, which includes nearly 40 works spanning five decades of the artist's career beginning in the early 1940s, including some of the legendary photographer's most seminal images. Most noteworthy in the exhibitions will be a number of color prints from Segregation Story, 1956.


The exhibitions will coincide with Gordon Parks Collected Works, a five-volume book on his photographs. (Steidl, 2012). The book will be the most extensive publication to document Gordon Parks's legendary career.


The Gordon Parks Foundation permanently preserves the work of Gordon Parks, makes it available to the public through exhibitions, books, and electronic media, and supports artistic and educational activities that advance what Gordon described as "the common search for a better life and a better world." The Foundation is a division of the Meserve-Kunhardt Foundation.


A number of other exhibitions in New York will coincide with the exhibition at Howard Greenberg Gallery including Gordon Parks: 100 Years at the International Center for Photography through January 6, 2013; Gordon Parks: 100 Moments at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture through December 1, 2012; Gordon Parks: Crossroads at the Tisch School of the Arts, Gulf+Western Gallery, from September 4 through September 25, 2012; and Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family 1967 at the Studio Museum of Harlem from November 7, 2012 through February 2013.

Many thanks to the Howard Greenberg Gallery for images and text above; and to Diana Revson, Director of External Affairs for The Gordon Parks Foundation, for keeping me informed over the years of the Foundations artistic and educational activities that advance what Gordon Parks described as "the common search for a better life and a better world." - Elizabeth Avedon, Sept 11, 2012, http: //elizabethavedon.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/gordon-parks-centennial-honoring.html


"I was down at MoMA where the Gordon Parks Foundation was hosting the Gordon Parks Centennial Gala, "Gordon Parks One Hundred Years."
I met Gordon Parks in the late 90s when Gloria Vanderbilt invited me to a dinner they were giving for him at ... I think ... MoMA. I know I wrote about it afterwards because I was starry-eyed. Parks and Vanderbilt were two very glamorous people in terms of public image and they had stature in presence too. But they were just powerful (but real) individuals.


Much is made of Parks' photographs, and deservedly. But New York is a place where the Ego Has Landed and remained intact. Fame and celebrity that graces (wrong word, right idea) the talent the city attracts often takes a piece of the heart and the humanity in exchange. Not true with Mr. Parks. He was his work. Vanderbilt is like that too. She and Parks were close friends. Night and Day you are the one.


The Gordon Parks Foundation was founded by Gordon Parks and Philip Kunhardt Jr. Its Executive Director is Peter Kunhardt Jr. They honored three people whose work "has changed the landscape of film, photography and music. Each has excelled in a field Gordon cared deeply about; each shares his commitment to making the world a better place."
David Patrick Columbia & Jeffrey Hirsch - www.NYSOCIALDIARY.com Sept 09/01/12. http: //www.nysocialdiary.com/node/1908115/print


"Though he was quite famous for being a filmmaker and the first African-American photographer for Life magazine, until this year, the 100th anniversary of his birth, most of his photographs, except for a few iconic images, were not widely known. That's changing this week as the publisher Gerhard Steidl's famed presses print "Gordon Parks: Collected Works," a comprehensive five-volume collection of Mr. Parks's photographs. Theclick.us Sept 27, 2012. http: //lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/27/gordon-parks-a-lasting-love/




Many of the images in Segregation Story had already appeared in Volume III of a handsome five-volume Collected Works published in late 2012, six years after Parks died at the age of ninety-three. But it's great to have more of them available, and at a price that makes them more attainable to those of Parks's admirers for whom the cost of the set would be a stretch.--Barry Schwabsky "Bookforum "

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Gordon Parks, born into poverty and segregation on a farm in Kansas in 1912, was the youngest of 15 children. He worked at odd jobs before buying a camera at a pawnshop in 1938 and training himself to become a photographer. Parks was a photographer at the Farm Security Administration and later at the Office of War Information in Washington D.C. from 1941 to 1945. As a freelance photographer, his 1948 photo essay on the life of a Harlem gang leader won him widespread acclaim and a position from 1948 to 1972 as the first black staff photographer and writer for Life Magazine, the largest circulation picture publication of its day. He was also a noted composer and author, and in 1969, became the first African American to write and direct a Hollywood feature film, The Learning Tree, based on his bestselling novel of the same name. This was followed in 1971 by the hugely successful motion picture, Shaft. Parks was the recipient of numerous awards, including the National Medal of Arts in 1988 and over 50 honorary doctorates. Parks died in 2006 at the age of 93.

I found this box set an impressive and thorough look at the remarkable photographic career of Gordon Parks. The five books (with 1084 pages) are arranged in chronological order though the fifth one is completely different from the others. Book one starts with his first assignment in 1942 for the FSA-OWI: coverage of African Americans in Washington. Twenty-nine photos are included with the now famous 'American Gothic' shot of office cleaner Ella Watson plus there are others of Ella and her family. These first twenty-nine photos really set the scene for the hundreds more in these books and show Parks ability to capture the essence of whatever he saw through the lens. This first book has fourteen portfolios of his work from 1942 to 1945.

Book two covers thirteen assignments from 1948 to 1955 and includes thirty-six photos from the Harlem gang leader story in the November 1, 1948 Life magazine but also twenty-two fashion shots for Life and Vogue. Book three with ten portfolios (1956-1963) has the first color work: a feature about segregation in the South for a September 24, 1956 issue of Life. Eighteen powerful shots are here, the magazine ran twenty-six from the assignment over twelve pages. Also in this book are Parks memorable Life assignments on crime (September 9, 1957) and twenty photos from the June 16, 1961 issue on Latin American poverty focusing on a twelve year old boy Flavio and his family living in the slums of Rio. Book four with nine portfolios shows how versatile Parks was with assignments on Muhammad Ali, Black Panthers and forty-two photos of performers taken between 1952 and 1998. Also in this book are twenty-three examples of color work: 1958-1975 and eighteen intriguing color abstracts taken during 1993 and 1995.

Also in this book are twenty-three examples of color work: 1958-1975 and eighteen intriguing color abstracts taken during 1993 and 1995.

The contents of book five was a complete surprise and a wonderful one at that. It reproduces fifteen of the strongest assignments Gordon Parks took for Life. The covers and complete spreads (including ads) are reduced to about 65% of the printed edition so all the text is readable. What I found fascinating was seeing how Parks photos were used in the magazine compared with many originals shown in the four book's portfolios. Here you can see how Life cropped photos and on occasion reversed them. In the Introduction to this book Paul Roth mentions that unlike Eugene Smith who eventually had enough of the way his photos were used on Life's pages Parks accepted the creative limitations of this successful middle-class general interest weekly. Looking through these Life pages I think the magazine mostly got the best out of his photo stories.

The five books are the usual excellent Steidl production, a lovely slightly creamy off-white matt art paper carries the 175 screen printing well. Each book has a short essay in the front followed by the portfolios then some Notes at the back. My slight annoyance is that the photo captions are also in the back pages so the reader has to flip backwards and forwards to get some detail about a photo. Like many Steidl titles that come in several books these five have a study slip-case.

A first-class monograph about a great photographer in a first-class production.

I received my Collected Works today on Gordon Parks, this is a wonderful recollection of his works.I could not put these volumes down. I have every book that has been published on Gordon Parks and by far this is the best. I totally agree with the other review. I was captivated by all the images, some I had seen before and others I am seeing for the first time. I highly recommend Collected Works, if you are a collector like I am, this is a must have.........
HASH(0x9ce42270) von 5 Sternen Exactly what makes for a great photography set! 15. August 2015

This is a fantastic collection, well composed /curated. Have owned it for a couple of months now. This collection is like going hungry and arriving at your favorite buffet. You are tempted to run to this or run to that favorite item. Maybe you dash to the desert end? Or you just sit down and eat from left to right, but with this set, it's your mind that expands, not your waistline. I still can't believe I was able to get this set so inexpensively. Get yours before someone wakes up to the price of the set and doubles or triples it. Stiedl is one of the top photo book printers in the world and they have done a great job in producing the work of this incredible photographer. By the way, on youtube.com there is a terrific documentary on Gordon Parks that's well worth your time and will enhance your appreciation of this set

When it comes to fine printing, this collection of five photography books is as good as it gets. The overall production quality is superb. Too bad publishers such as Taschen don't take lessons from these people. An amazingly well-done job.

A beautiful collection of books from a great photographer. Personally, I don't think Volume III was necessary. It entirely consists of scanned magazine spreads and pages with many pictures already in other volumes.
