Item Description...
Presents the life and accomplishments of the first African American photographer for Life magazine.

Publishers Description
" Gordon Parks is remarkable: a Renaissance man who has mastered photography, filmmaking, and writing. The story of his life is certainly an incredible one. Transcending voyeurism, Parks' photographs reveal vulnerabilities of the human experience with grace and compassion. In his 90s and still driven to experience what the world has to offer, and to express his response to it, Gordon Parks is an inspiration to us all." --Janet St. John, Booklist Gordon Parks overcame the obstacles of poverty and racism and never gave up on his dreams. He attributes his drive for excellence to his mother who told him,"What a white boy can do, you can too--and no excuses." The first black photographer for Life magazine, Gordon Parks spent over two decades as a professional photographer, and his resume has grown to include novelist, musician, artist, and poet. After reading a story about Gordon Parks in a Kansas newspaper, Ann Parr immediately set out to learn more about his life. She first interviewed the mayor of Fort Scott, Kansas, whose efforts healed wounds between Gordon Parks and his hometown, and then many of Parks' friends. But it was after interviewing Parks in person that she knew she had a success story that would inspire generations. Featuring forty-one vibrant black and white photographs and illustrations, this book includes details of Gordon Parks' life and his work. Included are his photographs of the poor, stylish Parisian models, and the Civil Rights movement.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
doesn't do the man justice  Jan 24, 2008
This book is not well written or illustrated. My question is why don't the pictures go with the text? It must be a first book for her and I hope her next one will be better. Someone must do a better job of telling the story of the life of this magnificent person and artist. This book left me and the kids I read it to in school unmoved.
Inspiring and Beautiful  Jan 10, 2007
This is a terrific book. It gives a great real life example of how it is possible to overcome many obstacles. I have used it to encourage my grandson in believing he can make a difference in his life and at the same time there are NO EXCUSES for failure. Great Pictures, simple text, great message.
Inspirational story  Aug 29, 2006
Author Ann Parr, tells the perhaps unknown inspirational story of a very well known photographer; writer, poet, and musician Gordon Parks. She does a very good job of not only telling the story of Gordon parks but also getting out the moral of his story.

This story my spark the mind of some kid somewhere to pick up a camera and follow a dream and become the next Gordon parks.
