This book is a wonderful history of a man I have loved since seeing a life magazine article about him and the book he wrote; The Learning Tree which I read because of the article. I saved that book and those photos for all these years and only just had to throw them away because they were mildewed from storage. Mr Parks was a renaissance man and had so many talents. I was so sorry when he died and also found it sad that he didn't seem to get the recognition he deserved. This book is a real tribute though and the documentary of the same name.

Great photographs, great composition, great printing, great stories.

This man was one of the very best photographers ever. Humanistic, bold, and inventive in documentary, fashion and fine art.

All the more amazing is that he succeeded as a black photographer during the dark times of racism in the USA.
