Danziger Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition devoted to the American photographs of Robert Frank, his best known and arguably most important work. The exhibition will be comprised of 40 photographs – 15 from Frank’s seminal book “The Americans” (now celebrating the 60th anniversary of its American publication) and 25 unpublished works from Frank’s travels at the time.
Born in Zurich in 1924, Frank began his career in photography in the mid-1940s before emigrating to America in 1947. As an immigrant, Frank was fascinated by America and after his first travels around the country he applied for a Guggenheim Fellowship to fund a longer and deeper journey around all parts of the country.
In his proposal to the Guggenheim Foundation Frank wrote: “The photographing of America is a large order - read at all literally, the phrase would be an absurdity.” The “total production” of such a project, he added, would be “voluminous.” However surprisingly the proposal was accepted and Frank embarked on a two-year journey around America during which he took over 28,000 photographs.
Eighty-three of the images were subsequently published in the book “The Americans” — widely recognized as one of the greatest photography books ever published.
What Frank brought to the medium was an improvisational quality that saw the world in a different but more truthful way than the commonly perceived visual clichés of his time. While the often dark and idiosyncratic nature of his vision shocked many people, it led the way to much of what has followed in photography. —-
