The Americans

© Robert Frank
Tomorrow I'm going to see the "Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans" exhibit at the Met. For me this feels like my own personal hajj. It is impossible to understate Robert Frank's contribution to photography and the American identity. I have seen many of Frank's photographs individually, but this is the first time I will be able to experience the full sweep of his expression. I can't wait.

Please do not miss this landmark show.

In the meantime, give a listen to this interview with Robert Frank and curator of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Department of Photographs (and my thesis advisor), Jeff Rosenheim on the Leonard Lopate Show.
