Gordon Parks: The Making of an Argument

When: Sept. 27-Dec. 17 2017
Price: $5-12
The exhibition pulls together more than eighty items from the Gordon Parks Foundation archives to offer a comprehensive investigation into the African American photographer’s first Life magazine photo-essay, “Harlem Gang Leader” (1948). Through vintage gelatin silver prints, contact sheets, original issues of Life, and a significant selection of unpublished photos from the series, the exhibition examines unspoken conflicts between photographer, editor, subject, and truth.
