Clebrating the Life and Work of Gordon Parks – My two favorite piece at the Grace Gallery 2021

I loved how everyone had a different approach on how they execute their vision.

For me my first favorite piece is from the Motion Submission. The reason why I connected with this project is because the use of sound, and how cohesive the layout is. The use of type and images work together. I made me feel if I was watching this at a gala were Gordon Parks is being recognized.

My second choice is from the Photography Submission by Muna Alghuzi. The concept does resemble the “New American Gothic” by Gordon Parks. The photograph is in black and white and how the subject is looking straight at the camera does make you feel that you are in front of the subject. The symbolism of this photograph is strong. That is this is my second best. Amazing work!
