This is definitely going to be interesting. Both aesthetically as historically. Politically and as a time capsule.

The civil rights movement photographed

The American photographer Gordon Parks (1912 – 2006) used his camera as a weapon. In a time of division, Parks introduced photography as a counterweight to combat racism, oppression and inequality. As a proponent of the civil rights movement, Parks exposed injustice and poverty. He portrayed key figures in the fight against injustice and made reports about the marginalization of African Americans for Life Magazine. The exhibition consists of 120 works, including vintage prints, contact sheets, magazines and fragments from the films The Learning Tree and Shaft, both directed by Parks.
