"Because he put so much of himself into his work, this book is not only a survey, but also an exploration of Parks' own identity. It reveals his complexity as a socially engaged artist and documentarian at one moment, and a commerical and fashion photographer the next. It shows how he was equally attuned to the lightest and darkest examples of humanity, and how he had an uncanny ability to be there to record both in a visually compelling way. While he could see himself in the face of poverty and despair, we can now see much of the history of twentieth-century America in him and his work."
