Description

Robert Frank (November 9, 1924 – September 9, 2019) was a Swiss photographer and documentary filmmaker, who became an American binational.

Robert Frank (November 9, 1924 – September 9, 2019) was a Swiss photographer and documentary filmmaker, who became an American binational. His most notable work, the 1958 book titled The Americans, earned Frank comparisons to a modern-day de Tocqueville for his fresh and nuanced outsider's view of American society.

Robert Harris Frank (born January 2, 1939) is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and a Professor of Economics at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University. He contributes to the "Economic View" column, which appears every fifth Sunday in The New York Times. Frank's 2011 book is on wealth inequality in the United States.

Frank’s book The Americans was first published in Paris before it was released in the United States in 1959 with an introduction by the Beat novelist Jack Kerouac. Oblique angles, cropped figures, and blurred movement became the hallmarks of a new photographic style that would change the course of postwar photography.

When Frank kind of sold out to Gerhard Steidl, a few years ago, and he began to publish book after book of his whole oeuvre with the German publisher, there was less risk, and the books were alright but more formulaic. The only thing I would change of "The Lines Of My Hand" is the semiglossy paper which was used. But, what was before, and after the Americans? The answer is in The Lines of my Hand.

Robert Frank, one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century, whose visually raw and personally expressive style was pivotal in changing the course of documentary photography, died on Monday in Inverness, Nova Scotia. Mr. Frank had come to detest the American drive for conformity, and the book was thought to be an indictment of American society, stripping away the picture-perfect vision of the country and its veneer of breezy optimism put forward in magazines and movies and on television. Yet at the core of his social criticism was a romantic idea about finding and honoring what was true and good about the United States.

Many of the photos are so-so, but a period of time is document in this book.

I am never happy with photos that have one edge corresponding with the spine or that extend partially onto a facing page. Too much of the information is lost as the facing pages curve toward the spine.

This delightful ensemble of work would, I think, be better presented in a format so that all images have some border separating them from the spine and do not project into or extend beyond the spine.

Perhaps the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the book might be slightly larger in order to present these fine images with space around them. All the photos bleed to at least one edge of a page. I can get used to that, but cannot get used to a bleed to the spine or extension partially onto the facing page.

The presentation in the same publisher's current printing of "The Americans" is a much more satisfying visual experience. There is enough separation from the spine not to be objectionable, and all photos are each on a single page.

Even photos on facing pages, as there are in "Paris," would be no problem if there is enough separation from the spine.

Totally different from others books of this author, he use it flowers and horses to build the rhythm of this book (as he used cars and flags in "The Americans"). A very original view of Paris, totally different with the masterpieces of Cartier Bresson, Brassai, Ronis, Izis and other great authors.

Another delightful book by Robert Frank, Paris shows that Frank is a master no matter what country he is in. Lovely reproductions make this an easy recommend to anyone intersted in the photography of Robert Frank.
