Robert Frank

The Swiss-American photographer is best known for its exceptionally critical and large-scale photo reportage on the United States. Until 1957 he traveled through the U.S. and so he did 28,000 photos of which he collected 83 to his book The Americans.
Our archive has an extensive documentation of his exhibition "the americans" in 2000 at the Folkwang Museum in Essen.
