Fresh From America


The Americans by Robert Frank just crossed my desk and is, at this very moment, able to be checked out! It accompanies the Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans exhibition at the National Gallery of Art.

Look for The Americans (the book) on the New Books shelving near the reference desk. If nothing else get it for its original, scatological Kerouac introduction. It is priceless and you won't be disappointed. The photographs themselves are pretty much the definition of High Modernist American photography, though Frank would hate me saying that.
