Gordon Parks (1912 – 2006) was the first African American photographer and writer to work for Life Magazine, where he started in 1948 and would remain for two decades. His work focuses on race relations, poverty, Civil Rights, and urban life and has become an important documentation of mid-twentieth century America.

The exhibition An American History at Forma is the largest European retrospective to be dedicated to his work, to his profound poetry, to his classic, powerful and highly cinematographic photography.
