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.
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.
