" An excellent association copy, inscribed by poet/photographer Allen Ginsberg: “A late Birthday Present - July 8, 1985 on 57th St. for Lucien Carr from Allen Ginsberg.” Ginsberg met Carr at Columbia University in 1943, and through Carr met Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and William Burroughs. In the NYT Obituary for Carr (30 January 2005), Ginsberg’s earlier comment about Carr’s role in the circle of friendships that gave birth to the literary arm of the Beat generation was quoted: “Lou was the glue.” Carr went to work for United Press International in 1946 and was promoted to night news editor in 1956, coincident with the preparations for press of the first public edition of Howl. Carr was included, with Kerouac, Burroughs and Cassady, in the printed dedication, and when he received his copy, he wrote Ginsberg expressing “one small gripe” about his inclusion there, and requesting, out of deference to his privacy, that Ginsberg avoid such mention in future books. At Ginsberg’s expense, Carr’s name was deleted from the dedication page of the second impression (then already printed), and from subsequent printings.Nonetheless, in 1982, Ginsberg dedicated Plutonian Ode to Carr, “... for friendship allthese years....” --description from William Reese Company, bookseller

I have been going forward, travelling my road while looking out. I am listening to my voice. The landscape changes and me too. Years ago a first version of the lines of my hand was published. Since then many have gone a way. I continue to look and search for an image that comes close to a truth. It is my choice, it is my fate, and I continue.... Robert Frank

Driftless : photographs from Iowa by Danny Wilcox Frazier( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Driftless, Danny Wilcox Frazier's dramatic black-and-white photographs portray a changing Midwest of vanishing towns and transformed landscapes. As rural economies fail, people and resources are migrating to the coasts and cities, as though the heart of America were being emptied. Frazier's arresting photographs take us into Iowa's abandoned places and illuminate the lives of those people who stay behind and continue to live there: young people at leisure, fishermen on the Mississippi, veterans on Memorial Day, Amish women playing cards, as well as more recent arrivals, Lubavitcher Hasidic Jews at prayer and Latinos at work in the fields. Frazier's camera finds these newcomers while it also captures activities that seemingly have gone on forever: harvesting and hunting, celebrating and socializing, praying and surviving.Poetic and dark but illuminated with flashes of insight, this collection of photographs is a portrait of contemporary rural Iowa, but it is also more than that. It shows what is happening in many rural and out-of-the-way communities all over the United States, where people find ways to get by in the wake of closing factories and the demise of family farms. Taken by a true insider who has lived in Iowa his entire life, Frazier's photographs are rich in emotion and give expression to the hopes and desires of the people who remain, whose needs and wants are complicated by the economic realities remaking rural America."--Google Books

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

"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 : the complete film works( Visual )

"Pull My Daisy is a 1959 short film that typifies the Beat Generation. Directed by Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie, Daisy was adapted by Jack Kerouac from the third act of a stage play he never finished entitled 'Beat Generation'. Kerouac also provided improvised narration. It starred Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Larry Rivers, Peter Orlovsky, David Amram, Richard Bellamy, Alice Neel, Sally Gross and Pablo, Frank's then-infant son. Based on an incident in the life of Neal Cassady and his wife Carolyn, Daisy tells the story of a railway brakeman whose painter wife invites a respectable bishop over for dinner. However, the brakeman's bohemian friends crash the party, with comic results. Pull My Daisy was praised for years as an improvisational masterpiece, until Leslie revealed in 1968 that the film was actually carefully planned, rehearsed, and directed by him and Frank."--Publisher's description
