Harlem, New York, 1952
A man’s fixed gaze rises from an uncovered manhole, his bare hands grip the asphalt, his face darkened by the shadowy night. Without context, this arresting image could evoke a more sinister interpretation, but photographer Gordon Parks had a much more poignant message with this 1952 work, Emerging Man.
This image is a great example of his ability to expand from the objective and really tell a story during this time.
