This eclectic scapbook profiles the photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank, whose book The Americans is generally acknowledged to be one of the most important achievements in the history of photography. Included are essays, film reviews, drawings, letters, photographs, and personal documents from the past 20 years. The resulting portrait, however, is not particularly insightful or perceptive. It is interesting, but interesting in the way a fan magazine is interestingfull of fascinating details that celebrate the subject but shed little light on him. Not a necessry purchase.
