Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  The Studio Museum in Harlem  •  Ongoing
 
Gordon Parks: A Harlem Family 1967 honors the legacy and the work of late iconic artist and photojournalist Gordon Parks, who would have turned 100 on November 30, 2012. The exhibition, organized by Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden and Assistant Curator Lauren Haynes, features approximately thirty black and white photographs of the Fontenelle family, whose lives Parks documented as part of a 1968 Life magazine photo essay. A searing portrait of poverty in the United States, the Fontenelle photographs provide a view of Harlem through the narrative of a specific family at a particular moment in time. This exhibition includes all images from the original essay as well as several unpublished images — some which have never been displayed publicly.
