The Americans
Robert Frank

Photography book

In 1955, Robert Frank crossed the United States. A cowboy, the suffering of a woman who has just buried a relative, a shoe shiner or just a road… Only eighty-four of his images were published in 1958 in total indifference.

This book has since become a classic of photography. Considered sad, perverse and even subversive by the American press at the time, its importance has nevertheless continued to grow over the years. Photographers, critics and the general public hailed Robert Frank as a true innovator.

This book does not tell the story of a man’s journey through the United States, but it gathers notes taken on the spot.
