Farewell to Robert Frank

Robert Frank — one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century, has died. But you can still experience his impact by looking up his book The Americans, a collection of piercing photographs taken in the 1950s around the USA and just as powerful now as it was then (click here). Click here for the New York Times story. Click here for a look at Susquehanna Summer, a photography project I did that was in large part inspired by him. Above, Frank, from the Times obit, (photo by Dodo Ming Jin) and, below, two of his photos from The Americans, also screen shots from the Times obit.
