Photographer, filmmaker,MoreRarely has a photography exhibition and accompanying book received the acclaim that Half Past Autumn, Gordon Parkss 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 Parkss 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 Parkss life and his struggle against racism.
