The Americans by Robert Frank

Robert Frank (1924), born in Z├╝rich, Switzerland, is an important figure in American photography and film. His most notable work, the 1958 photobook titled The Americans, was influential, and earned Frank comparisons to a modern-day de Tocqueville for his fresh and skeptical outsider's view of American society. Frank later expanded into film and video and experimented with compositing and manipulating photographs.

Below is a collection of some of his amazing photographs taken in America in 1955 and 1956.

  1. The 10th photo of the woman and 2 girls on the beach; if that newspaper says "Marilyn Dead", that'd be in 1962, not 1955/56
