Robert Frank The Americans PhotographThe photography of Robert Frank has often been called revolutionary.  He worked at a time when the classical rules of photography were rarely departed from, yet he departed.  NPR says he “…single-handedly altered the course of photography…”  His book, The Americans, was a documentation of an all too familiar subject, American life.  But Frank’s departure from the rules that dominated how a photograph was composed and presented up until that point made his work and book stand out.  Check out NPR’s coverage of Robert Frank and a new exhibit of his work at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art by clicking here.  (I wish I was closer to NY!)
