gordon parks

Photography is an incredible gift to humankind because ... it robs the everlasting movement of time. Photography says, "in this second, Time, you will be still!" Right! Time still moves in our paper, digital encapsulations. Time still roams through the barriers of our pitiful would-be preservations---against it. But even so, photography, some 'times' overtly rules. Photography is after all extremely illicit, controlled and an ultimate cheat, the thread of grained beauty and superiority of the existence of life. No! I haven't been drinking and this is not a rough draft. I am merely in a celebratory mood--thinking of the greatness of gordon parks. 1912-2006
