Description des Livres :
From Publishers Weekly In this 50th anniversary reissue, celebrated photographer Frank maintains the format (left page: brief caption, right page: photo) and introduction (Jack Kerouac: 'with the agility, mystery, genius, sadness and strange secrecy of a shadow Frank photographed scenes that have never been seen before on film'), the images themselves have been re-scanned, re-cropped by Frank and, in two cases, changed. Frank's images, taken all across the country, leave the viewer with a solemn impression of American life. From funerals to drug store cafeterias to parks, Frank recorded every shade of everyday life he encountered: the lower and upper classes, the living and dead, the hopeful and destitute, all the while experimenting with angle, focus and grain to increase impact. Preceding an exhibition that will tour U.S. galleries in 2009, this volume will no doubt introduce new generations to Frank's inimitable record of daily life fifty years ago. Kerouac says, fittingly, that 'after seeing these pictures you end up finally not knowing any more whether a jukebox is sadder than a coffin'; those who don't comprehend Kerouac's comment have yet to experience this classic collection. 83 tri-tone plates.

Read more Review [Frank] pioneered a whole new subject matter that we [now] define as icons: cars, jukeboxes, even the road itself. (Scott Indrisek Artsy)The photographs from his seminal book The Americans, which took a critical look at our nationâ€™s life in the 1950s, are timeless. His work continues to inspire new generations to follow his path to see what is invisible in America. (L'Oeil de la Photographie)His work is revolutionary in showing an America that was not seen, but also creating a way of seeing in photography that was new, powerful and charged. (Ken Light San Francisco Chronicle)...Robert Frank changed history with the 83 images that appeared in his stark breakthrough â€œThe Americans. (Sam Whiting SFGate)That is the miracle of great socially committed art: It addresses our sources of deepest unease, helps us to confront what we cannot organize or explain by making all of it unforgettable. (Nicholas Dawidoff The New York Times Magazine)The exhibition is as comprehensive as it is ephemeral featuring a wealth of photographs, all of Frankâ€™s books since 1947, and his films that he began focusing on in the early 1960s.
