Gordon Parks: Part Two

Gordon Parks Alison Jacques Gallery

Alison Jacques Gallery presents the second of two exhibitions of the work of American photographer Gordon Parks (1912-2006) in collaboration with The Gordon Parks Foundation.

These exhibitions are the first solo presentations of Parks’ work to be held in London for over twenty-five years. Part One, 1 July – 8 August, focused on Parks’ Segregation in the South (1956) and Black Muslims (1963) projects. Part Two will focus on Parks’ intimate and nuanced portrait of the legendary athlete and human rights advocate Muhammad Ali. Receiving unprecedented access to the champion, Gordon Parks photographed and profiled Ali twice for Life magazine. The first photo essay entitled The Redemption of the Champion was published on 9 September 1966. Parks met Ali during his training in Miami, before flying to London to document the run up to his fight against Henry Cooper.
