The Americans by Robert Frank( Book )

"From April 1955, when he secured a Guggenheim Fellowship (with recommendations from Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, Meyer Shapiro, Alexey Brodovitch, and Alexander Liberman), to June 1956, Robert Frank made a number of short trips out from New York and one long (nine-month) journey to the West Coast in a 1950 Ford to photograph America. From the more than twenty thousand images (on 687 rolls of film) that resulted, Frank eventually chose 83 of them and arranged them into four chapters, each beginning with a flag image. ... Such a simple intention for a book that would so alter the course of modern photography ... The Delpire first edition Les Americains (1958) is more like a sociological study wherein Frank's photographs appear as illustrations of the probing texts printed on facing pages, gathered by Alain Bosquet from dozens of illustrious writers"--The Book of 101 Books : Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century / edited by Andrew Roth.

Robert Frank, now 91 years old, is among the most influential artists of the last half-century. His seminal volume, The Americans, published in 1958, records the Swiss-born photographer's candid reactions to peculiarly American versions of poverty and racism. Today it is a classic work that helped define the off-the-cuff, idiosyncratic elegance that are hallmarks of Frank's artistry

20 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Frank is one of the most influential of all post-war photographers. Pioneering a revolutionary approach to photography and filmmaking, he combines autobiographical and poetic elements to produce straight black-and-white images that transcend the specific. Speaking of universal experience, Frank has said, "I'm trying to forget easy photo, trying to make something from within." He adds, "Time moves on and never stops or waits." Often involving a progression through a series of images, his work is structured like a musical sequence, creating storylines that resonate beyond the frozen moment of any single photograph. Storylines accompanies an exhibition highlighting Frank's experimental use of narrative in photography and film. The exhibition consists of his films and photographs, including Polaroids, contact sheets and recent digital stills. Photographs from locations as diverse as Peru, London, Wales, Coney Island and Chicago, appear along with several artist's books
