Fine unsigned photo by Mark GERSON signed and inscribed in pencil by the photographer, showing him full length seated on some steps outside with a book by Margaret Mead beside him, 9½" x 7½" in frame 15" x 12", London,

Baldwin was an American novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic. His essays, as collected in Notes of a Native Son (1955), explore palpable yet unspoken intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-20th-century America, and their inevitable if unnameable tensions.
Mark Gerson is a portrait photographer of major 20th century literary figures and other personalities from 1948 to the present day.
