Black Photographers Pay Tribute to Gordon Parks
Ninety of the nations top African-American photographers will converge on Harlem on Saturday, Nov. 30, to pay tribute to the legendary Life Magazine photographer Gordon Parks who will be celebrating his 90th birthday that day.
That afternoon, at 2 p.m., the 90 photographers will gather with Mr. Parks for a group photo at an undisclosed site in Harlem.
Prior to the historic photo shoot, the photographers will fan out across Harlem neighborhoods to document its people and their activities for a forthcoming exhibition and book titled "Harlem Saturday." The photographers will be dedicating some of their work from the photo shoot to raise money for scholarships and to support existing photography workshops.
This unprecedented gathering of some of the nations top photographers will include 10 Pulitzer Prize winners and a representation of major photography award winners from across the country, many of whom work with some of the worlds leading media outlets.
Gordon Parks is one of my idols. There isnt much more to say about him. Do a simple Google search to find out more about him if you dont know him or his many works. A true Renaissance Man.
