His work was some of the best.... RIP
From June 1955 thru the spring of 1956, for a period of nine months, Robert Frank had driven over 10,000 miles across more than 30 states [out of a total of 48]. In all, he had taken 27,000 photographs. When he returned to New York in 1956, he whittled those images down to 1,000 large prints. He tacked and stapled the photos around his apartment like wallpaper. After four months, he chose just 83 of them for his book, "The Americans".
