Gordon Parks

on

One of the many photographers who influenced my way of viewing the world and photography is Gordon Parks. Gordon Parks was not only photographer, but also composer and filmmaker. He filmed the original Shaft movie in 1971.
As a photographer, he was the first African American employed by Life magazine. Today, I found the video above on YouTube with an overview about his work. It is only a few minutes long, but gives an introduction to Gordon Parks.
