Gordon Parks High School
Student Scholar Projects

September 13 - October 8, 2022 

The Quarter Gallery presents a companion exhibition to A Picture Gallery of the Soul organized in collaboration with the Gordon Parks High School of St. Paul. The exhibition includes photographs and essays made by student scholars at the school. These student projects were supervised by photography instructor Chris Faust and Robin Hickman-Winfield, founder of SoulTouch productions and the great-niece of Gordon Parks.

The mission of the Gordon Parks High School is to honor the legacy of Gordon Parks by providing pathways to graduation and opportunities for lifelong success. Gordon Parks (1912-2006) was born in Fort Scott, Kansas. Following his mother’s death, he was sent to live with his sister in St. Paul, Minnesota, at the age of fifteen. From this young age he worked at a variety of jobs. He purchased his first camera at a pawnshop and began his photography career in the Twin Cities. A turning point came with an internship at the Farm Security Administration, for which he created a series of photographs of Ella Watson, including the iconic American Gothic on display in the Katherine E. Nash Gallery as part of A Picture Gallery of the Soul. Parks had a monumental career that included work as a photographer, photojournalist, writer, musician, composer, and Hollywood film director. His work continues to be exhibited widely and is included in the permanent collections of the International Center of Photography, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Museum of Modern Art, among other institutions.
