Gordon Parks born as the fifteenth child of Mr. and Mrs. Parks, he had to fight for survival, for jobs, for means to support his family, and finally he fought for African American civil rights. He lived 93 years and witnessed change, both on a macro and micro scale. Pathos is unavoidable when speaking about the first black photographer to be hired by such magazines as “Life” or “Vogue”. He was a writer, a poet, a composer and a Hollywood director. He published several memoirs.

How did he select his subjects? What was his approach when photographing people and how did he treat his subjects?

On Saturday, 3 June, at 3 PM, Joanna Kinowska – curator of the exhibition, will guide us through the “Gordon Parks: I use my camera as a weapon”.

Entry to the exhibition tour is free. We look forward to welcoming you!
