Challenge #1 in the History of Photography series. Hosted by JMCO.
Challenge has finished
“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.” ¶ Frank’s book Les Américains (The Americans) is one of the most important photography books of the later 20th Century. Images from a recent exhibition on the book can be seen here: http://goo.gl/cCurV ¶ Frank later built a career in film making but continues to do still photography and plan exhibits of his work. ¶ Early in his career, Frank was influenced by renowned graphic designer and art director Alexey Brodovitch at Harper’s Bazaar. ¶ Additional information, a slide show of Frank’s work, and an audio visual presentation with commentary by Frank can be seen here: http://goo.gl/K43Df
