Robert Frank's 'The Americans'

After many years of going to bookshops and buying a photography book or two i recently purchased Robert Franks 'The Americans'. Before now i would browse a copy of Franks famous book occasionally, look through its pages but i would put it back on the shelve and would seek out a book by a recently established photographer.


I recently succumbed, i was in one of those big book chains and saw 'The Americans' at a good price, so i rather than looking for something strange and new i took home this classic.


It's a great book, i can flick through it for ages, this images are beautifully presented snapshots of everyday life. The sequencing of the book is also sheer genius, as you flick through the book it takes upon a cinematic quality and you feel like you are travelling with Frank through sixties america.
