Gordon Parks - Moments Without Proper Names
Author's Words from Prologue: This collection, I hope, speaks for itself, the photographs and verse echoing one another. I like to think of it as an inward look. For I feel it is the heart, not the eye, that should determine the content of the photograph. What the eye sees is its own. What the eye sees is its own. What the heart can perceive is a very different matter. For me at least, the camera is a technical device, used as a writer uses his typewriter or as a painter uses his brush.
This collection of photojournalist Gordon Parks' work do not follow any narrative. Rather, they serve to illustrate and define the themes that Parks' work focused on: racism, poverty, and violence. His photographs and poems are only samples of his multifaceted career as a photographer, poet, novelist, musician, journalist, activist, and film director.
