The Gordon Parks Foundation and Steidl today announced that Jamel Shabazz has been named the 2022 recipient of The Gordon Parks Foundation/Steidl Book Prize. Launched in 2020, the Prize provides a publishing platform for artists whose practice reflects and extends Gordon Parks’s legacy. Shabazz is the second artist to receive the honor, following inaugural Prize recipient LaToya Ruby Frazier, whose appointment will culminate this spring with the release of a new publication dedicated to her body of work chronicling the Flint, Michigan water crisis. The book, Flint Is Family In Three Acts, coincides with an exhibition of the same name, on view April 13 through June 22, 2022, at The Gordon Parks Foundation in Pleasantville, New York.
