Gordon Parks and Rania Matar: Exposure

Richard Levy Gallery, Albuquerque, NM

Exposure is an exhibition of photographs by Gordon Parks and Rania Matar. Each photographer presents a deeply humanitarian perspective to human rights conflicts both past and present. In the wake of the 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, Life Magazine asked Gordon Parks to go and document the racial tensions embedded there. While on assignment, Parks developed a series of images that documented the daily lives of the African American community. This body of work entitled Segregation Series was discovered in his personal archives and posthumously released in full color, something rarely seen in photographs from that era. Today, Rania Matar photographs Syrian refugee children living in her hometown of Beirut. In her series, Invisible Children, she captures portraits of these children who often go unseen while begging for work to help their displaced families. Matar puts a face to this present humanitarian crisis by capturing each child and their individual identities.
