About this Item

1st Printing. 40 pages. Published in 2010. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful collections in the Steidl "Robert Frank Project". The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with white titles on the spine, as issued. Photographs and brief text by Robert Frank. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Steidl in Gottingen, Germany to the highest standards. In cardboard slipcase that is printed on one side. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Robert Frank's "Tal Uf Tal Ab". Black-and-white photographs selected by Robert Frank from his personal archives, which all appear in published form for the very first time. "Frank's subjects are his life now, an inquisitive existence shaped by memory: Newsstands, streetscapes, portraits of friends and his wife June Leaf, interiors, a self-portrait. This book is the latest phase in Frank's unceasing exploration of photography" (Publisher's blurb). This book is the latest manifestation of Robert Frank's relentless melancholy, the most profound among late-modern artists. Despite its Arabic sound, "Tal Uf Tal Ab" is "Swiss-German. It means direction up the valley/down the valley. Now I live and wait and think mostly in the places I live: New York City and Mabou NS" (Robert Frank). "NS" is, of course, Nova Scotia. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Frank collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 29 tritone plates. Three of Robert Frank's books were selected as among the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". At the age of 92, Robert Frank was profiled in 2016 by The New York Times as "the greatest photographer of our time". A flawless copy.

About this title

Synopsis:

Tal Uf Tal Ab shows Robert Frank's life now, an inquisitive existence shaped by memory, and includes photographs of newsstands, streetscapes, friends, his wife June Leaf, interiors, as well as a self-portrait. Scattered among these images are earlier ones from Frank's past, for example a candid portrait of Jack Kerouac. As with all Frank's publications, Tal Uf Tal Ab is a humble yet important progression in the medium of the photo book.
