Robert Frank
FameRank: 6

"Robert Frank" is an American Documentary photography/photographer and documentary filmmaker. His most notable work, the 1958 book titled The Americans (photography)/The Americans, earned Frank comparisons to a modern-day Alexis de Tocqueville/de Tocqueville for his fresh and nuanced outsider's view of American society. Critic Sean O'Hagan (journalist)/Sean O'Hagan, writing in The Guardian in 2014, said The Americans "changed the nature of photography, what it could say and how it could say it. [ . . . ] it remains perhaps the most influential photography book of the 20th century." Frank later expanded into film and video and experimented with manipulating photographs and photomontage.
