Publisher's presentation :
"Segregation Story features a broad selection of images – most of them published for the first time – from Gordon Parks’ powerful 1956 photographic series documenting the « Restraints: Open and Hidden » on an extended African American family persevering in the segregated South.
Originally commissioned for Life magazine, Parks’ work resulted in the creation of hundreds of transparencies, representing one of his earliest social documentary studies on color film, only a fraction of which had been reproduced."
With texts by Michael E. Shapiro & Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr., Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Maurice Berger.
In addition to the plates, this book features - in a separate part at the end of the book - reproductions of a cover and double-spreads from Life Magazine issues where the series was featured.
NB : The selection of images displayed here was taken from an American Suburb X article published on the occasion of the exhibition of this work at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta during the Spring 2015.
