Gordon got it.

“I chose my camera,”as a weapon against poverty, against racism, against all forms of social wrongs.” But he went on: “the camera is not meant just to show misery. You can show things that you like about the universe…. It’s capable of doing both.” -Gordon Parks


Today would be Gordon’s 100th birthday. A great reason, should you need one, to check out his work, and to visit the ICP exhibition if you can. If I was in New York, I’d be there in a flash (Gordon).
