Format: Hardcover
Beautiful photos of (mostly) campesinos and landscapes of Andean Peru. While the subjects are often the indigenous people, the visual approach and sparseness of the images also strongly captures a sense of the land and the environment where they lived and worked. There is a true connection to the place for the viewer.

What is also astonishing is the relative timelessness of these photos, in that the style of dress and the places remain largely unchanged in some rural areas of Peru. One could perhaps capture similar images today - all they need is the talent, sensibilities, and eye of Robert Frank!

An inspiring must-view for any photographer traveling to Peru.

Format: Hardcover
Robert Frank is a master of black and white photography and in capturing a certain feel and place of something familiar yet somehow elevated. This is a slim volume of work that has not been printed in its complete form so this is a rare treat for Robert Frank collectors. beautifully printed and this probably won't stay in print so best to buy a copy before it goes out of print.

Save your money. It's not worth it. The quality of the photographs are poor. There is also no writing to explain the shots.
