Gordon Parks – Image Gallery

Via: Vintage Everyday

Gordon Parks was one of the seminal figures of twentieth century photography.

In 2012 the Gordon Parks Foundation discovered more than 70 color transparencies at the bottom of an old storage box, wrapped in paper and masking tape and marked, “Segregation Series.”

These never before series of images not only give us a glimpse into the everyday life of African Americans during the 50′s but are also in full color, something that is uncommon for photographs from that era.
