Robert Frank is one of the most influential photographers in the history of photography. His book The Americans is a must-have for any photographer serious about their art. Complete with a forward by Jack Kerouac The Americans conveys Frank’s perspective on America after traveling across the county with his camera on a Guggenheim Foundation grant in 1955-1956. There is a strange beauty and sadness to many of his images. Some of the photographs will startle you while others have a subtlety that lingers for days.
