Robert Frank

One day I hope to get my hands on Robert Frank’s book, The Americans, but for now, I’m just going to have to settle for admiring Franks work online.

“There are few single works of art that have changed the direction of their medium. In 1959, one book dramatically altered how photographers looked through their viewfinders and the way Americans saw themselves.”

    Such an amazing piece of work from Frank. Imagine how it was received at the time, would of changed the way many saw America at the time.

    The photos are so much better in the actual book… The simple layout, and clean titles is so well done and copied by nearly everyone.
