Eyes with Winged Thoughts: Poems and Photographs (英語) ハードカバー – 2005/11/1
Gordon Parks's retrospective book of art photography, Half Past Autumn, published in 1997, coincided with an exhibition organized by the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., which traveled in the United States from that year until 2003, and an HBO documentary that aired on November 30, 2000. He has authored numerous books of art, fiction, memoir (including A Star for Noon), photographs, and a CD of his music (2000). He published The Learning Tree, a novel, in 1963, and three previous autobiographies, A Choice of Weapons, To Smile in Autumn, and Voices in the Mirror. He died in March 2006 at his home in Manhattan. He was 93.

He speaks of war, peace, empathy. On a more personal note, there is love: Love of family, friends, the beauty of the world we live in despite -- and sometimes because of -- the squalor or desperate circumstances that coexist with being human.
If you never buy another Gordon Parks book, or if you just aren't up to a physically "big" book right now, treat yourself to this. It will be among one of the truly BIGGEST books you will ever luxuriate in.
His poems are wonderful in their simplicity and perception. One need not be of African descent to appreciate his words and be stirred by them. It is comforting to me that a human being named Gordon Parks exists and has shared himself with us, to our betterment.
Parks, born black and the last child of many produced by his sharecropper parents, transcended all the limitations set upon him in his time and place. I suspect he even surprised himself. He was not only a prize-winning photographer, but a poet, musician, film director, and author.
This book gives glimpses into his complicated and fascinating soul through combining two forms of his artistic talents.
