One of my clear memories of college is when Robert Heinecken loaned me his copy of The Americans. I took it home, sat down, looked at it page by page, amazed. It changed my understanding of the power of photography. I then got in my car and went to a bookstore to buy my own copy. Don’t think the intimacy of being introduced to someone’s work on the Internet is quite the same. One of my most treasured books.
Robert Frank turned 90 on Sunday. So glad to have come across this article in the Guardian.
