First edition. ‘Robert Frank has always faced up to one thing only, himself. That is shown by his work, the films even more than the photographs. This book is dedicated to Frank’s film and video oeuvre, which grew and developed impressively in the years between 1959 and 2002, though unnoticed by most of the world. He worked in a place untouched by fashions and schools, his art literally growing out of and for itself, which is the reason it is so singular, so inimitable’ (Grissemann).
