Macy’s Celebrates Black History Month & Gordon Parks

With the fond love I have for photography I was ecstatic to be contacted by Everywhere to cover Macy’s photographic art installation of world renowned photographer Gordon Parks. Macy’s is celebrating his legacy throughout the month of February in many of their larger markets with an exhibition of his works, as well as discussions with notable actors and actresses regarding the influence of Gordon Parks on film and the future of African-American cinema.
