brings together the important collaboration between two artistic geniuses…the relevance of social change has never rung so true. (Liz Ronk Time, Best Photobooks of 2016)
Gordon Parks and Ralph Ellison, two of the 20th century’s most celebrated artists, shared a vision of what it meant to be black in the US. Parks, a photographer and filmmaker, and Ellison, a novelist and essayist, collaborated twice on projects that revealed, through words and images, what they believed to be essential aspects of the African American condition. Although the collaborations differed in form, the sensibility that animated them was the same, and so was the setting ― Harlem. (John Edwin Mason Hyperallergic)
...captures the rich expressiveness of their work in an austerely designed format that honors both the imagery and the prose and invites the reader to linger over the page. (Michal Raz-Russo On the Seawall)
Illuminating both the parallels and divergences between Parks's and Ellison's work, this show promises a new perspective on the pair's joint use of photography during the civil rights movement, a period of heightened attention to the rhetoric of images. (Solveig Nelson Artforum)
