Frank Views Of Fifties America

robert frank’s amazing observations of the usa in the 1950s.

Robert Frank, who died this week at 94, led a complicated life, but his photos remain alive with the energies of 50s America. He caught the anomie, the division, the wounds, but also the connections, the thrills, joyrides, the hopes.

I have always loved his attention to motorcycle culture in the 50s.

There’s more to be written (or did I miss it?) about Frank’s take on gender in his photographs for sure.
