06.09.13 Gordon Parks & Burt Glinn

with 2 comments

A recent NYTimes Lens Blog featured the photographic work of Gordon Parks and an essay by Maurice Berger about Joanne Wilson, a truly remarkable woman whose strength in the face of oppression has been, until now, largely unheralded. The post reminded me of the picture below, which I discovered while visiting Elena Glinn. The image captures Gordon Parks, Burt Glinn and Elena–three exceptional and influential individuals in their own right.

I couldn’t stop a huge smile from crossing my face when I opened this email a few minutes ago.  Magnum features one of their members about every other week — and today it is my mentor Burt Glinn.  I think of Burt often as I make my way through the triumphs and trials of photography, and life in general.

To see more of Burt’s work, please visit Burt’s Website.  And soon to debut — the Burt Glinn Blog.
