Robert Frank, 50 Years After The Americans

Email a Friend

It’s been 50 years since the publication of Robert Frank’s landmark book: "The Americans".

The book chronicled in pictures the impressions of the Swiss-born photographer, as he crisscrossed America. WNYC’s Sara Fishko talked with Frank in his downtown Manhattan studio earlier this year about his working life, just after World War II.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will open an exhibition devoted to Robert Frank tomorrow, and Frank will be a guest on the Leonard Lopate show next Tuesday, September 29th.
