Robert Frank by Robert Frank

Book Description

Inscribed with the quote, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly / what is essential is invisible to the eye," by writer and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Robert Frank's handcrafted 1952 book, "Black White and Things," was made in an edition of three identical copies designed by Werner Zryd, each with a spiral binding containing original photographs of Frank's travels to cities including Paris, New York, Valencia and St. Louis. First reprinted for an exhibition at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., in 1994, this edition has now been designed in a smaller format by Frank. The three categories "black," "white" and "things," are shaped more by mood than subject matter: vastly different images-Frank's first wife reclining with their newborn baby, peasants squatting against a flaking wall in Peru and a business man strolling past a snow-filled tree in London-are all gathered in the "white" section, for example.

Robert Frank: What We Have Seen. Was Haben Wir Gesehen by Robert Frank Robert Frank: What We Have Seen. Was Haben Wir Gesehen, Paperback (February 2016)

Robert Frank's visual diaries constitute an important part of both his later work and the ongoing art of the photobook. Auspiciously opening and closing with the zoom on the dial of a clock tower, serving as a reminder of the silent but constant passage of time, this book is heavy with memories and pictures of old photographs.

The New York Times columnist and author of The Economic Naturalist, Robert Frank returns to show how behavioral economics can illuminate some of the most important issues of our times
