Gordon Parks : the Flávio story / Paul Roth, Amanda Maddox ; with contributions by Sérgio Burgi [and 7 others].

Documentary photography Exhibitions.
Author: Parks, Gordon, 1912-2006,
Description: This book explores a once-popular picture story by Gordon Parks and the extraordinary chain of events it prompted. Published in 'Life' magazine in June 1961 as 'Poverty: Freedom's Fearful Foe', this empathetic photo-essay profiled the da Silva family, living in a hillside favela near a wealthy enclave of Rio de Janeiro. Focused primarily on the eldest son Flávio, an industrious twelve-year-old suffering from crippling asthma, Parks' story elicited more than 3,000 letters and $25,000 in donations from 'Life' readers to help the family and the favela. In Brazil the story sparked controversy; one news magazine, 'O Cruzeiro', retaliated against 'Life', sending photographer Henri Ballot to document poverty in New York City. Undeterred, 'Life' embarked on a multi-year "rescue" effort that involved moving Flávio to a Denver hospital, relocating the family to a new home and administering funds to support the favela. The story, as well as Parks' relationship to Flávio, continued to develop over many years. The details of this extraordinary history provide a fascinating example of US exceptionalism during the early 1960s and a revealing look inside the power and cultural force of the "Great American Magazine".
