Gordon Parks: Half And The Whole

Visionary artist and photographer Gordon Parks (1912-2006) was witness to the life and turmoil of Black Americans that continues to influence American culture to this day. Jack Shainman Gallery, NY in collaboration with the Gordon Parks Foundation mounted the ‘Half and the Whole’ exhibition, featuring photographs that span from 1942–1970. Many of those images are still relevant today in this racially charged political environment with the recent protests of the Black Lives Matter movement. Unfortunately the lessons of the past were not fully learned.
