Robert Frank

Robert Frank was “one of the most influential photographers of the mid-20th century, noted for ironic renderings of American life.” Frank became a professional industrial photographer when he was twenty-two years old. In the 1940s he became a fashion photographer for Harper’s Bazaar magazine in Paris. Feeling limited by this type of work in 1948, he traveled to the US and then Peru to gain experience using the 35-mm camera.

  After success with his photography career and having his work published, in 1959 he turned to cinematography. His first movie, Pull My Daisy, was successful, but his later works were not as well liked.
