Gordon Parks Centennial

His Legacy at Wichita State University

This book celebrates photographer, filmmaker, composer, and author Gordon Parks, drawing on photographs and archival material held at Wichita State University. Parks's legacy involves a delicate confluence of artistic traditions and the vernacular creative forces in modern American experience. John Wright explores the forms of vision Parks employed across artistic media to grapple with the culture of contradictions he observed in 20th-century America.
