Robert Frank: In America

Edited with text by Peter Galassi.

Because of the importance of Robert Frank's The Americans; because he turned to filmmaking in 1959, the same year the book appeared in the United States; and because he made very different kinds of pictures when he returned to still photography in the 1970s, most of Frank's American work of the 1950s is poorly known. This book, based on the important Frank collection at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, is the first to focus on that work. Its careful sequence of 131 plates integrates 22 photographs from The Americans with more than 100 unknown or unfamiliar images to chart the major themes and pictorial strategies of Frank's work in the United States in the 1950s. Peter Galassi's text presents a thorough reconsideration of Frank's first photographic career and examines in detail how he used the full range of photography's vital 35mm vocabulary to reclaim the medium's artistic tradition from the hegemony of the magazines.

Robert Frank: In America brings together twenty-two of the images from The Americans with more than one hundred other images made between 1947 and the early 1960s... Where The Americans,/i> placed Frank on the outside looking in, Robert Frank: In America puts him right in the midst of it all.

Robert Frank: In America

Robert Frank: In America

Featured image is Bedrich Grunzweig's 1954 photograph of Robert Frank outside the Metropolitan Opera—less than one year before the young Swiss photographer would set out upon his epic journey across the United States. Grunzweig's photograph initiates Robert Frank: In America, Steidl's invaluable recent collection of mostly unknown Frank photographs made between 1947—when Frank arrived in this country—through the early 1960s—when he turned to filmmaking. Only a few of the photographs collected in this book appeared in The Americans; the rest have rarely been seen or exhibited. Frank will appear in conversation with his publisher, Gerhard Steidl, at the Tisch School of Fine Arts this evening. The event is sold out. continue to blog
