Robert Frank Photos: "The Americans" Exhibit

Washington, DC--At the National Gallery of Art-West we saw a wonderful exhibit of photographer and movie maker Robert Frank, "The Americans." Frank made these wonderful 1950s photographs into a book, recording life in America at mid-century.

From the exhibit: "The exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the book's publication by presenting all 83 photographs from The Americans in the order established by the book, and by providing a detailed examination of the book's roots in Frank's earlier work, its construction, and its impact on his later art."
