Biographical Note

Eugene Gordon started his career as a photographer, taking stock images for textbooks and other publications. He traveled extensively in his personal life and documented religious ceremonies and different ethnicities of people in the countries he visited. Gordon continued this project throughout New York City, but most extensively at home in Queens, New York. Some of his favorite subjects to document were street scenes, parades, festivals, and Times Square. He printed his photographs in his own darkroom in Forest Hills, Queens.
