The definitive book on 'The Americans'

Looking In: Robert Frank’s The Americans

If you are a fan of Robert Frank, this book is a must-buy. Amazon no longer has it. Inexpensive copies are getting hard to find, so grab one now while it’s still to be found under $100.

My copied arrived the other day and it’s going to take a long time to get through this tome. And it’s going to be a pleasure. Seeing Frank’s contact sheets alone is worth the price of admission. Note that only the expanded hardback edition of the book has the contact sheets.

You can read two good reviews here and here.

The folks at Artsy.net maintain a site on Robert Frank where you can see the astronomical prices his prints fetch along with links to articles on Frank and other photographers.
