.A Loaded Camera at Cantor Arts Center

A picture tells a thousand words but the work of a master can tell so, so much more. Opening this Wednesday at the Cantor Arts Center is an exhibition documenting the work of the late Gordon Parks. The African-American photographer—best known for using his camera to confront racism and discrimination during the Civil Rights era—began taking pictures in Kansas when he was just eight years old. Over the course of his career, his photographs would be featured in Life magazine and he would go on to receive more than 20 honorary doctorates, including a NAACP Image Award in 2003.
