    Harlem Street Portraits


    This is the sixth monograph by Mr. Stein, and follows his critically acclaimed book on another iconic New York place, Coney Island 40 Years (Schiffer Publishing, 2011). In this beautiful new volume, we are presented with Stein$B!G(Js engaging, direct, black and white portraits of the people of Harlem taken over a period of twenty-three years. Stein$B!G(Js humanistic photographs reflect his affection and reverence for America$B!G(Js most famous African-American neighborhood and its inhabitants. Stein is among the few practitioners who have photographed Harlem for over two decades.

    The images are mostly close-up portraits that reveal the friendliness and warmth of this city$B!G(Js inhabitants, the vibrant and bustling vitality of the area, and the changing nature of the neighborhood. What may at first appear to be a casual encounter becomes a personal, intimate record, a meaningful collaboration between photographer and subject. Its rich past and historical importance have made a unique contribution to our national popular culture. Stein$B!G(Js photographs capture and celebrate the Harlem spirit.

    Harvey writes in his author$B!G(Js note: "My intention is to show a sense of community and my admiration and fondness, and to document the humanity and spirit of the people while confirming Harlem$B!G(Js basic nature—a vibrant, important and essential world famous neighborhood that faces a radically changing future."

    (BPRW) Macy’s Salutes Gordon Parks, an American Master, in Celebration of Black History Month


    - Macy’s, in partnership with The Gordon Parks Foundation and the American Black Film Festival, honors Gordon Parks with a series of special events at select Macy’s stores nationwide -

    (BLACK PR WIRE) – NEW YORK -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- From one icon to another, this February Macy’s (NYSE:M), an American retail institution, salutes American cultural hero Gordon Parks in celebration of Black History Month. Via special events and exhibits at select stores across the country, Macy’s will honor the legacy of this artistic master who chronicled and defined a generation and whose work continues to inspire artists today.

    A humanitarian with a deep commitment to social justice, Gordon Parks was one of the seminal figures of twentieth century photography. From the early 1940s until his death in 2006, Parks created a body of work that documents many of the most important aspects of American culture, with a focus on race relations, poverty, Civil Rights and urban life. In addition, Parks was a celebrated composer, author and filmmaker who interacted with many of the most prominent people of his era — from politicians and artists to celebrities and athletes. In 1969 he became the first African-American to write and direct a Hollywood feature film based on his bestselling novel “The Learning Tree.” This was followed in 1971 by the hugely successful motion picture “Shaft.”

    “Macy’s is thrilled to partner with The Gordon Parks Foundation and the American Black Film Festival to honor the legacy and work of famed artistic master Gordon Parks,” said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s vice president of Diversity Strategies.

    “Exemplary Americans like Gordon Parks serve to inspire generations with a rich legacy of achievement that crosses boundaries and continues to inform and inspire the work of those who follow in their footsteps. From photography to film and music, Gordon Parks is the perfect American hero to honor during Black History Month celebrations at Macy’s.”

    “The Gordon Parks Foundation is pleased to partner with Macy’s to celebrate the centennial of Gordon Parks for Black History Month. Parks’ genius was based on the respect and trust he brought to his subjects not only through the lens of his camera but through his own personal story. Macy’s is committed to keeping icons like Gordon Parks in the public eye to inspire future generations,” said Peter W. Kunhardt, Jr. executive director, The Gordon Parks Foundation.

    “The American Black Film Festival is honored to be a part of the celebration of Gordon Parks,” said Jeff Friday, CEO of The Film Life Inc., and founder of the American Black Film Festival. “Gordon Parks had a profound impact on the arts as the first African-American to work at “LIFE” magazine and the first to write, direct and score a Hollywood film (“Shaft,” 1971). He was a true renaissance man; a celebrated photographer, musician, writer and film director who captured some of America’s most captivating images and told some of American history’s most compelling stories through his lens. We are proud to be part of this tribute to him this Black History Month.”

    Gordon Parks: Black American Icon events at Macy’s will consist of a variety of celebrations. Featuring photographic installations Gordon Parks’ iconic images, “In Conversation” events moderated by representatives from The Gordon Parks Foundation and American Black Film Festival, “The Learning Tree” children’s events, and Soul Jam music, dance presentations, Macy’s stores will examine, honor and celebrate the many arts-based accomplishments of this unique American icon. Taking place at 14 Macy’s locations nationwide including stores in Atlanta, Bowie, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., each store will offer one or more of these event elements. The “In Conversation” discussions will focus on Gordon Parks’ influence on film and the future of African-American cinema. Featured speakers at select locations will include actors Omari Hardwick (“For Colored Girls…,” “Sparkle”), Eriq La Salle (“ER”), Lamman Rucker (“Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns,” “Why Did I Get Married?”), Terrell Tilford (“Soul Food,” “One Life To Live”), Malinda Williams (“A Thin Line Between Love and Hate,” “Soul Food”) and Malik Yoba (“NY Undercover,” “Why Did I Get Married?”).

    The “Children’s Learning Tree” events held in conjunction with The Reading Circle, will highlight Parks’ literary life as children build their own unique books. Finally, the artist’s musical legacy will get the party started with special Soul Jam events geared towards a younger generation. Featuring DJ’s and dancers, the Soul Jam sessions will highlight the “Shaft” era in music for a new audience.

    From Feb. 1 - 28, 2013 visitors to macys.com/celebrate will be offered the opportunity to enter for the chance to win a trip for two to the American Black Film Festival in Miami and a $1000 Macy’s shopping spree courtesy of American Airlines. (Please visit www.macys.com/celebrate for complete entry rules or visit the event store for more information.)
