About the Author

Robert Frank was born in Zurich in 1924 to parents of Jewish descent. He immigrated to the United States two years after World War II ended, and since then, he has produced work that changed the history of art and photography. Ground-breaking projects include The Americans, Lines of My Hand, Thank you, Black White and Things, Pull My Daisy, and Cocksucker Blues. Frank was the subject of a major traveling exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art in 1994. He divides his time between New York City and Nova Scotia. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
The collaborative effort of Scalo in collaboration with the Corcoran Gallery (Washington, D.C.), London/Wales is a photography collection 72 early 1950's tritone images taken by the famous and "museum-worthy" photographer Robert Frank. An informed and informative text is minimally present in this collection, which is primarily dedicated to showcasing the powerful still images of urban life and the people who lived in 1950s London, England and Careau, Wales. A superbly presented and enthralling compilation, London/Wales memorably illustrates the very essence of London and Wales and is a strongly recommended addition to professional, academic, and community library History of Photography collections.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on July 29, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Robert Frank's previously unpublished photographs of London and Wales from the early 1950s are a revelation. With insightful text from curator Philip Brookman, this book is a must-buy for casual fans and scholars alike. Having recently seen the exhibition of this work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, I must say viewing the photographs first hand was a wonderful experience. Yes, the prints are often too gray and dark, the negatives poorly exposed, and some images slightly out of focus, but through this work we can see an evolving photographic style that reached perfection a few years later in the seminal book, "The Americans." And witnessing that transformation is what made the exhibit, and this book, so memorable and priceless.

It's a nice book. Not quite like seeing them in person, but hey, what can you do.
