The editors at Life never limited assignments for Gordon Parks, the magazine’s first African American photographer. Deeply aware of his versatility, they valued his iconic fashion images as well as his portraits of artists, celebrities, and leaders.
“Don Hogan Charles, the first black staff photographer to be hired by the NYTimes, has died. He shot amazing photos: this iconic image of Malcolm X for Ebony magazine, beautiful photos of Harlem, where he lived, and so many more. RIP (1/2)”
