Gordon Parks Photographer

Gordon Parks was born in Fort Scott, Kansas on November 30, 1912 . He was the youngest upon his siblings. His father was a farmer and he attended a segregated school.

He started developing his ideas when he was the age of 25 when seeing portfolios of photographers in magazines.

A major even in his life was when his mother died when he was just the age of 14. Another major event from his life was his encounters with discrimination as a kid.

This is some of Gordon Parks work.
