About this title

Synopsis:

This comprehensive volume presents the works of the Swedish photographer, and includes five essays which analyze different aspects of Frank's photographs, films and videos

From Booklist:

Robert Frank forever changed the art of photography and our visual lexicon with his epoch-defining book, The Americans. A set of gritty, haphazard, and intuitive photographs documenting America circa 1955, it brought Frank fame from which he promptly fled. Frank abandoned the hype and hubris of New York City for the privacy and primacy of Nova Scotia, the stasis of photography for the motion of movies. He also moved away from the overtly cultural and political perspective of his on-the-road photographs to more autobiographical themes, although, at every phase, he's been a chronicler of introspection and emotional tension. This focus emerges when Frank's work is seen in its entirety, which has just become possible with the opening of a retrospective exhibition and publication of this comprehensive and handsomely produced companion volume. Beginning with Frank's earliest photographs, taken in his native Switzerland, Moving Out traces his quest for freedom of vision and spontaneity of expression. While five excellent essays analyze various aspects of Frank's photographs, films, and videos, Frank himself emerges from these pages--restless, ornery, uncompromising, mournful (many later works express grief over the death of his daughter), and sentient.
