About the event

Join us for a panel discussion with photographers who worked and learned from Gordon Parks and who hope that his influence is reflected in their work. Discussion topics will include Gordon's techniques for example his use of lighting, but also broader ideas such as Gordon Parks’ depth, inspiration, and impact.

Featured panelists will be Fred Watkins, Choice of Weapons Honoree, Michael Cheers, Associate Professor, Photojournalism, School of Journalism and Mass Communications, San Jose State University, Jason Miccolo Johnson, former Professor in the Journalism and Mass Communications Department at Savannah State University Photographer, and Veretta Cobler, Photographer.
