Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation presents “Gordon Parks. I am You. Selected Works 1942-1978”

A camera doesn’t simply take pictures. It can be a powerful tool against oppression, racism, violence and inequality. Gordon Parks (1912–2006) has referred to the camera as his weapon of choice and used the photographic medium his entire life in an intelligent and educational way to both expose the underbelly of the American way of life and to mediate between groups in a deeply divided society. The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation will present about 180 photographs, contact sheets, magazines and films, reflecting the broad spectrum of Parks’s artistic work from 1942 to 1978 and offering an insight into his photographic and cinematic work. “Gordon Parks. I am you. Selected Works 1942-1978” will be on display from 22 September 2017 to 5 January 2018 at Deutsche Börse's headquarters, The Cube, in Eschborn.
