Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America

Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America

$ 16.99

Gordon Parks is most famous for being the first black director in Hollywood. He taught himself how to take pictures and before long, people noticed. His success as a fashion photographer landed him a job working for the government. In Washington DC, Gordon went looking for a subject, but what he found was segregation. He and others were treated differently because of the color of their skin. Gordon wanted to take a stand against the racism he observed. With his camera in hand, he found a way. Told through lyrical verse and atmospheric art, this is the story of how, with a single photograph, a self-taught artist got America to take notice.
