Arles 2013: –Gordon Parks


After first presenting it at Forma, in Milan, curator Alessandra Mauro has brought the work of American photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks to France for the first time. This is a classical retrospective, organised chronologically, with films and documentary, highlighting the social and political approach of one of the foremost black American photographers. While the colour documentary material is often surprising, we were less convinced of the need to include the fashion photography and portraits of famous personalities. However, we weren't going to let this spoil our pleasure in finally seeing a full retrospective on Gordon Parks, who still hasn't gained the recognition he deserves amongst the greats in documentary photography.
