Gordon Parks

Inspo: Gordon Parks

Gordon Parks is the main reason why I picked up a camera. My very first photography website, 93 Autumns, was a homage in a way to Gordon Parks’ “Half Past Autumn” His photography American Gothic remains one of my favorite portraits….photos of all time.

I was so bummed when I was in D.C. last month that I wasn’t able to visit the National Portrait Gallery to check out the exhibit: Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940–1950 because of the government shutdown. Thanks Trump.
