Gordon Parks

Gordon Park influenced photography as did Weegee, Robert Frank and many other photographers who lived in different worlds. Parks, Weegee and Frank, as examples, worked in one world, but lived in another and as they brought their world to others they also photographed the other world with the scrutinizing eye of an outsider.

Here are three examples of his work photography, a deeply angry and passionate image of his world and as an outsider. He was highly successful in all three.
