Bridging the Gap: Photography by Gordon Parks and Toni Parks
Castle Gallery’s winter 2010-11 exhibition, Bridging the Gap, features the work of Gordon Parks and his daughter, and fellow photographer, Toni Parks.
Not only a photographer, Gordon Parks was an activist, writer and filmmaker, as well as one of the first African-Americans to work for Life magazine and create a Hollywood film; he also co-founded Essence magazine.
Toni Parks is an active photographer living in the U.K. and member of Kamoinge, a New York-based group of African-American photographers established in 1963.
Featuring photographs from The College of New Rochelle’s own collection, this show will touch on issues that both Gordon and Toni Parks address in their black-and-white and color prints, which collectively span over 50 years.
