Press Release

For six weeks an exhibit of famous and not-so-famous portraits taken by Gordon Parks was open to the public at The Gallery at Hermès in New York City. More than 300 guests attended the opening. Although Parks had never exhibited these images as a group during his lifetime, he once said: “The moments I spent making these portraits always flow back with the warmest of memories. They are people who I have admired and felt at ease with. And in most cases, I attempted to intertwine their personalities and their professions.”
