    This volume redresses the imbalance of critical attention paid to Robert Frank's work in cinema - an oeuvre as esteemed among cinephiles as his photography is elsewhere. Never content to walk the same path twice, he has approached each of his 27 films as a new experience, so that his films have proved difficult to categorize, especially in their amalgamation of documentary, fiction and autobiography. This volume presents essays by vartious authors examining each film and video in detail; and, an interview with Allen Ginsberg. Illustrated throughout. 304p.

  • PANGNIRTUNG

    In August 1992 Robert Frank’s good friend Reginald Rankin invited Frank on a trip to Pangnirtung, a village of around 1,300 Inuit inhabitants in the Arctic Circle. This book is Frank’s documentation of the five-day sojourn. Curiously Frank depicts Pangnirtung void of its people: the still harbor, public housing, a convenience store, a telephone post. Sincere without being sentimental, the photographs are shaped by a short text from Frank himself, “Prefabricated homes along the main road in Pangnirtung. At times a decorated window – reflections inside or outside. Stones – maybe the balance of a big sky above…” Illus., 27 Quadrotone photographs. 40p
  • Paris: A Short Return

    The publication of this volume marks the first time that the significant body of photographs which Robert Frank made in Paris in the 1950s has been brought together in a single book. This 1951 trip to France was only Frank's second return to Europe after he had settled in New York City in 1947, and some of the images he made during that visit have become iconic in the history of the medium. The 80 photographs reproduced here, which were selected by Frank and editor Ute Eskildsen, suggest that Frank's experience of the 'new world' had sharpened his eye for European urbanism. Illus., 80 tritone. 160p.
  • Richistan: A Journey Through the American Wealth Boom and the Lives of the New Rich

    • Published: June 2007
    Autho Robert Frank has been loitering on the docks of yacht marinas, pestering his way into charity balls, and schmoozing with real estate agents selling mega-houses to capture the story of the twenty-first century's nouveau riche. The senior special writer at The Wall Street Journal has discovered not one Richistan but three: Lower, Middle, and Upper, each of which has its own levels and distinctions of wealth - the haves and the have-mores. Frank is keen to note that the influence of Richistan and the Richistanis extends well beyond the almost 10 million households that make up its population. Don't say we didn't warn you!

    A companion book to the National Gallery's exhibition of its recently-acquired Robert Frank Collection, celebrating a lifetime of work by the Swiss photographer who documented the American scene. Frank embarked on a road tour of the country in 1953, resulting in The Americans , a look beneath the surface of the country's wholesome image of itself. After filming Pull My Daisy , with Jack Kerouac and other members of the beat generation, and Cocksucker Blues , a documentary of the Rolling Stones, Frank turned to more autobiographical work. Photos from all of these phases of his career are here, plus his earlier work in Europe, and a sample of his color work. Five essays complement the photographs. Includes a chronology and a list of exhibitions. 9.5x12". Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

  • Zero Mostel Reads a Book

    By Robert Frank

    Our Price: $20.00
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9783865215864
    • Publisher: STEIDL
    • Published: April 2008
    Photographer/film-maker Robert Frank takes male comic actor Zero Mostel for his subject but flouts the genre's quietist sobriety in every way possible (Manet's portrait of Zola depicts the writer merely staring away from his open book). Mostel is depicted in cartoonish dimensions, bemused, baffled and apoplectic, as he makes his way through an unidentified hardcover volume, while seated at a table or on a sofa in a large lounge area. First published in 1963, the present publication relates a series of theatrical and playful vignettes in which Mostel's most famous roles - Tevye in Fidddler on the Roof; Psedulous in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum - are clearly signaled. 36 tritones.
