In Eyes with Winged Thoughts, the forty-four photographs and fifty-eight poems, reflecting on Gordon Parks' long and extraordinary life, offer a rare glimpse of his thoughts and feelings about everything from romantic love to the Iraq war and the passing of Pope John Paul II. 

 

Now in his nineties, he could easily rest on his laurels, but the luminous photographs on display in Eyes with Winged Thoughts and the poems, some meditative and lyrical, some raw with emotion about the war in Iraq and the tragedy of the tsunami, show that he is still a true American Renaissance man.
