Robert Frank [Contemporary Photographer]
Born in Switzerland in 1924, Robert Frank became an influential figure in American art. In 1947 Frank moved to America and worked as a fashion photographer. Frank documented life in America. At first his impression of America was good, but later he discovered how fast paced life was in New York. He saw an overemphasis on money and wealth. This showed in his photographs. He included these in a book he published in 1958 called The Americas.
