Hungry Heart by Gordon Parks, Jr

Book Description

Acclaimed photographer, filmmaker, composer, novelist, and memoirist, Gordon Parks has participated in, been witness to, and documented many of the major events in the twentieth and the twenty-first centuries. In "A Hungry Heart, " Parks reflects on the people and events that shaped him: from growing up poor on the Kansas prairie to crisscrossing the country on the North Coast Limited; documenting poverty and injustice in Chicago to doing fashion spreads for "Vogue;" photographing black revolutionaries to writing, composing the soundtrack for, and directing the Hollywood movie version of his novel "The Learning Tree." More than a self-portrait of the artist, "A Hungry Heart" is a striking account of an American era.
