Robert Frank

11 September 2019

It is with great sadness to learn about the recent passing of one of the worlds most influential ‘documentary’ photographers this week.

Robert changed the perception of ‘documentary’ photography with his book The Americans’ which is still as influential today as when the first edition was published in 1958 by Robert Delpire in France and the following year in the USA.

I had the honor of meeting Robert through Ed Grazda when I used to stay with Ed on Bleecker. Ed was Robert’s neighbor and used to print for him. Robert was always a hands on guy and when I met him he was under a bonnet and not behind a Leica or Bolex…

One of the greats.

‘Just try to burn this One’ American Election 1990. Ben Edwards. Inspired by Robert Frank.
