GORDON PARKS, BY AFRICAN AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER MORRIS LANE

We acquired this from Morris Lane, the noted African American photographer. It is the only copy he retained and the only one with an inscription: "To Morris with My Affection Gordon."

Stamped, twice, on reverse: "PHOTOGRAPH BY MORRIS LANE COPYRIGHT ALL RIGHTS RESERVED." Handwritten in pencil, on reverse: "Vintage Print A/P 1/1," "Morris Lane," and "'Gordon Parks' '1990.'"

UNMOUNTED.
