Heroes

May 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I no longer buy a lot of books preferring to read on my Kindle. The exception, of course, is photography books which I feel should be read and appreciated in hardcover or paperback editions. I have the very first Kindle which does not display photos very well.

One of my all-time favorite photographers, who is still living, is Robert Frank whose series of photos The Americans, (Steidl; Revised edition May 15, 2008) transformed the nature of photography.

 

A great read for the street photographer is Eric Kim’s blogpost, Robert Frank’s “The Americans”: Timeless Lessons Street Photographers Can Learn. http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2013/01/07/timeless-lessons-street-photographers-can-learn-from-robert-franks-the-americans/

To see the trailer for the 2016 Robert Frank documentary, Don’t Blink, visit Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yZAzXzS47E
