Kunhardt, Jr. -- Sequence and series : photographic and filmic thinking by Gordon Parks / Felix Hoffman -- Fashion, 1947-1954 -- Harlem is nowhere, 1948 -- Harlem gang leader, 1948 -- Ingrid Bergman on Stromboli, 1949 -- Back to Fort Scott, 1950 -- Alberto Giacometti, 1951 -- Alexander Calder, 1952 -- A man becomes invisible, 1952 -- Fashion, 1956-1978 -- Segregation in the South, 1956 -- Crime, 1957 -- Duke Ellington, 1960 -- Muhammad Ali, 1966/1970 -- Flavio, 1961 -- The learning tree, 1963 -- The March on Washington, 1963 -- Black Muslims, 1963 -- A Harlem family, 1967.
Injustice, violence, the rise of the American civil rights movement, high fashion and the arts-Gordon Parks captured half a century of the vast changes to the American cultural landscape in his multi-faceted career. I AM YOU: Selected Works, 1942-1978 reveals the breadth of his work as the first African American photographer for Vogue and Life magazines as well as a filmmaker, and as a writer. Reportage for major magazines dominated Parks' work from 1948 to 1972. He chronicled black America's struggle for equality, exposing the harsh realities of life in Harlem, institutionalized racism, and shocking poverty. Parks was equally accomplished as a portraitist, capturing figures such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King alongside entertainers including Duke Ellington and Ingrid Bergman. He turned his attention to film in the 1960s with social documentaries as well as the now cult classic Shaft (1971). This book traces the threads of Parks' achievements, examining his multi-layered oeuvre through the interaction between his photographic and filmic visions.

An unprecedented look at an eccentric and seductive profession and the men and women who practice it on the treacherous shifting sands of pop and fashion culture, Focus depicts--perhaps most important--the rewards and cost, both terribly high, of translating an artist's vision of beauty for an often cold and cruel commercial reality."--Adapted from dust jacket.
