Moments Without Proper Names. Gordon Parks. A Studio Book, The Viking Press, New York, 1975. First edition. Large quarto. Cloth in photo-illustrated dustjacket. 176 pp. INSCRIBED BY PARKS IN INK ON FRONT ENDPAPER: "To _________ - who surely has heard the doves complaining in the darkening trees - Love, Gordon. August 1987 - New York."

Through his photo-essays for LIFE magazine, his documentary work for Standard Oil Company, and his books, Parks became the first black American photographer/filmmaker to gain international acclaim. From the dustjacket: "Words and images provocatively echo one another in this, Gordon Parks' most ambitious book project to date. Autobiographical to a large extent, photographs and verse reflect many aspects of his highly emotional, uncommonly eventful life: the confusion and poverty he experienced as a child growing up in Fort Scott, Kansas; the bigotry, drug addiction, terror, chaos, and blatant inhumanity to which he was exposed as a rising journalist and photographer; the beauty and sophistication with which his professional career is associated today." Many of the photographs are hauntingly moving, almost iconic, especially the black-and-white images of his earlier decades.

A near fine copy with cloth fading at the very lower edge of cover (1/8 inch) and a slight bump to the top upper corner of the back cover; very good dustjacket with a few small, minor tears (some repaired with archival 'invisible' tape on reverse).
