Exhibitions: Rare Photos by Gordon Parks at the High Museum
On view now at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta is the exhibition “Gordon Parks: Segregation Story,” which presents rarely seen work by the trailblazing African American photographer and filmmaker. The show, presented in collaboration with The Gordon Parks Foundation, features more than 40 color prints, most on view for the first time, that Parks shot for Life magazine in the 1950s. After the essay’s publication, many of the images were stored away and were presumed lost over the past 50 years.
