Inhaltsangabe: First published in France in 1958, then the United States in 1959, Robert Frank’s The Americans changed the course of twentieth-century photography. In eighty-three photographs, Frank looked beneath the surface of American life to reveal a people plagued by racism, ill-served by their politicians, and rendered numb by a rapidly expanding culture of consumption. Yet he also found novel areas of beauty in simple, overlooked corners of American life. And it was not just his subject matter – cars, jukeboxes, and even the road itself – that redefined the icons of America; it was also his seemingly intuitive, immediate, off-kilter style, as well as his method of brilliantly linking his photographs together thematically, conceptually, formally, and linguistically, that made The Americans so innovative. More of an ode or a poem than a literal document, the book is as powerful and provocative today as it was fifty-five years ago.
Product Description: His work is revolutionary in showing an America that was not seen, but also creating a way of seeing in photography that was new, powerful and charged.--Ken Light "San Francisco Chronicle " ...Robert Frank changed history with the 83 images that appeared in his stark breakthrough "The Americans.--Sam Whiting "SFGate " That is the miracle of great socially committed art: It addresses our sources of deepest unease, helps us to confront what we cannot organize or explain by making all of it unforgettable.--Nicholas Dawidoff "The New York Times Magazine " The exhibition is as comprehensive as it is ephemeral featuring a wealth of photographs, all of Frank's books since 1947, and his films that he began focusing on in the early 1960s.--Lisa Contag "Artinfo "
