Gordon Park's photo of a charwoman (Chore Woman) in Washington DC, 1942. Her name is Ella Watson. In this photo, she represents the backbone of America, in a country that doesn't treat her as a full American. This photo is known as American Gothic. Gordon Parks was an African American who worked for the Farm Security Administration and took some of the most sought-after portraits today. This photo was highlighted in a film on Gordon Parks called "A Choice of Weapons: Inspired by Gordon Parks" on HBO.
Beautiful print! Can't wait to order another.
