    Robert Frank's first feature-length film premiered at the the 1968 Venice Film Festival. Everything that had defined his art up to that point is packed into this film - the view of America as if from the outside, the placement of the mariginal in a central role, the poetic libertinage of the Beats. The story, which takes place during the showing of another film in a rundown movie theatre, weaves together opposites, i.e., playing the counterfeit against the authentic,pornography against poetry, monochrome against color. 'Me and My Brother' celebrates the poetic essay, affirming the underground and the assemblage form. This book/DVD set includes stills, dialogue, & the re-edited 85-minute film. 56p.

    Because of the importance of Robert Frank's The Americans; because he turned to filmmaking in 1959, the same year the book appeared in the United States; and because he made very different kinds of pictures when he returned to still photography in the 1970s, most of Frank's American work of the 1950s is poorly known. This book, based on the important Frank collection at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University, is the first to focus on that work. Its careful sequence of 131 plates integrates 22 photographs from The Americans with more than 100 unknown or unfamiliar images to chart the major themes and pictorial strategies of Frank's work in the United States in the 1950s. Peter Galassi's text presents a thorough reconsideration of Frank's first photographic career and examines in detail how he used the full range of photography's vital 35mm vocabulary to reclaim the medium's artistic tradition from the hegemony of the magazines.

    In 1950, Robert Frank left his job as a photographer in New York to travel through Europe with his family. That summer he arrived in Valencia, Spain, which was at the time a humble, bleak place enduring the austere conditions of the postwar period like the rest of the country. The pictures Frank took of Valencia depict the daily life of a fishing village. His portrayal is so natural and clear that further verbal explanation seems superfluous; they simply reflect, in the photo grapher's words, "the humanity of the moment". The photographs in this book, many of which have never been published before, allow dignity to override poverty.
