Exhibition: ROBERT FRANK: The Americans

ROBERT FRANK: The Americans is presented as part of Lehigh Valley Photography Month. In 1955 Robert Frank traveled across the United States shooting a quintessentially American social landscape from an outsider’s perspective. The Americans countered the image of the 1950s optimism, revealing hidden faces of poverty, racism, and consumerism. This exhibition features images of Frank’s unedited contact sheets, complete with his notations, to provide a glimpse into the artist’s mind during the realization of this monumental project.
