Hearse, London, 1951 by Robert Frank

Through his camera’s viewfinder, Robert Frank aligned a number of seemingly unrelated elements of this foggy London street scene into a coherent picture. In the foreground, the open door of a hearse frames the grainy form of a rubbish collector, while on the opposite side of the road a running child is reflected in the wet pavement. The solid black bulk of the vehicle stands out against the soft greys of the row of houses, which fade almost to white as they are swallowed by the fog.
