The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC along with consulting curator Philip Brookman have produced a retrospective exhibit spotlighting the early works of Minnesota’s most famous photographer, Gordon Parks.

“Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940–1950” is on display through Feb, 18, 2019 in Washington DC and is set to travel to other states over the next year.

Gordon Parks was born in Fort Scott, Kansas, in 1912 but after his mother’s death in 1926 he was sent to live with family in Minnesota to finish his schooling in Saint Paul.
