Half Past Autumn #1: Half Past Autumn: A Retrospective Cover

 

Staff Pick

This is Parks' look back on his career as one of the nation's most talented photographers. His career has spanned decades, and at the same time he was photographing some of the world's most beautiful models, he was also tackling the subjects of racism, poverty, and violence, while fighting prejudice and discrimination himself. This book is my latest treasure, and is mesmerizing and gorgeous.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Rarely has a photography exhibition and accompanying book received the acclaim that Half Past Autumn, Gordon Parks's retrospective show, did when it opened in the fall of 1997 at Washington, D.C.'s Corcoran Gallery of Art. Photographer, filmmaker, novelist, poet, and composer, Gordon Parks is one of the most inspiring success stories of our time. Now in a trade paperback edition, Half Past Autumn gives us the first complete retrospective of his photographic career, along with his own account of his amazing life. Half Past Autumn chronicles Parks's remarkable documentary images for the Farm Security Administration, his hard-hitting work for Life magazine, elegant fashion photos for Vogue, insightful portraits of notables, and his more recent abstract color images. With engaging anecdotal text that gives us the stories behind the images, this is an inspiring memoir of Parks's life and his struggle against racism.
