Gordon Parks

Celebrated for his documentary photography of civil rights issues and poverty throughout the United States, this work by Gordon Parks stands out for the considered composition and thoughtfulness captured on both subjects faces, and the architecture we find them in. Though very much a historical photograph, there is a timelessness to the image (and to Parks’ work) that is relatable in the joy and understanding of this shared moment. Parks worked extensively in Harlem, documenting the conflict and amity of the people who lived there. He had a way of capturing the true feeling of his subjects, recording their experiences as a tool for education, understanding and beauty.
