The Photography of Gordon Parks


Half Past Autumn : A Retrospective. by Gordon Parks ; essay by Philip Brookman.

Years ago I had the fortunate opportunity to hear Gordon Parks speak about his life and art work. This book captures some of the things he said in that presentation and numerous illustrations of his breathtaking photographs. The composition of his works create a view and feeling into a life or situation that only a true master can convey. I especially find his color photography to be superior. The vivid colors combined with his fantastic artistic abilities take the viewer to a whole new level of experience. I highly recommend this book to art lovers, historians, journalists, and anyone with the slightest interest in photography. Check catalog for availability.
