Description - Robert Frank by Peter C. Marzio

New York to Nova Scotia was originally published in 1986 to accompany a retrospective exhibition of the same name organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and has long been out of print. The chronology and personal spirit of Frank's complex career as a photographer and filmmaker are evoked with previously unpublished letters, pictures, reviews and essays as well as 18 photographs by Frank. Some of the letters are by Frank; others were written by photographers and contemporaries, such as W. Eugene Smith, Louis Faurer, Keith Smith, and Gotthard Schuh, and by legendary curators Hugh Edwards and Robert Delpire. Authors of the essays include Walker Evans, Jack Kerouac, Jonas Mekas, Allen Ginsberg and Robert Coles, as well as the exhibition curators, Philip Brookman and Anne W. Tucker. Other entries include Frank's proposal to the Guggenheim Foundation in 1954 that started his legendary journey across America, a letter from an Arkansas State policeman who arrested Frank during his trip to produce the photographs in The Americans, still images from Frank's films, and pictures of Frank throughout his career.

Author Biography - Peter C. Marzio

Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1924 and went to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans, first published in 1958, which gave rise to a distinct new art form in the photo-book, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy, made in 1959. His other important projects include the book Black White and Things, 1954, the book The Lines of My Hand, 1959 and the film Cocksucker Blues, 1972. Frank's work has been the subject of major exhibitions around the world and is included in many significant public and private photography collections. He divides his time between New York City and Nova Scotia, Canada.
