An excerpt from "The Photobook: A History, Volume I" by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger: "Flower Is" is a memorial to his daughter, Andrea, who was killed in an airplane crash in Guatemala in 1974. The book is in three "stream-of-consciousness" suites, which correspond to three different periods in the photographer's life. The first suite consists of flower photographs taken in Paris between 1949 and 1951; the second, photographs of Detroit car factories and pictures of the American South in 1955; the third and final suite, photographs of Nova Scotia taken between 1976 and 1984.Robert Frank continues to call Nova Scotia home but visits New York, where he is sometimes "sighted" on one of his lonely walks. "The whole tenor of the book is forlorn, which may be the best adjective that describes Frank's work as a whole. Never have flowers, that most uplifting of photographic subjects, appeared so woebegone. Seldom has the manic activity of industrial manufacture seemed so pointless. And the Nova Scotia landscapes and still lifes (beautiful, bleak, elegiac) reveal an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself.". Seller Inventory # 106606

Original shipping carton with title in pencil on one side. A fine copy with the original packaging. First edition. The Lines of My Hand is Robert Frank’s photographic autobiography, dedicated to his two children, Pablo and Andrea, ‘who are trying to find a better way to live.’ The photographs represent every stage of his work to the time of publishing, presented in chronological order and selected less for their historic or aesthetic significance than for their personal meaning. The final pages show a photograph of a view taken from Frank’s Nova Scotia home pinned to a wall in his New York studio with a letter to Kazuhiko Motomura attached. ‘Today I am happy to send you this photograph which I took two days ago and which is to be the final picture in the book. (Do you remember that wall in my house?) I hope that you will like the way I put it together. It’s that way because I want you to know and to see – how it was – to become like I am. All my best wishes.’ This edition of The Lines of My Hand was issued in two variants, each in an edition of 500 with a black-and-white photograph tipped on to one side, the present copy with ‘Platte River, Tennessee’. On page 75 there is a photograph of a postcard sent to Frank by Jack Kerouac, referring to the photograph that is used on the cover he writes: ‘Dear Robert — That photo you sent me of a guy looking over his cow on the Platte River is to me a photo of a man recognizing his own mind’s essence, no matter what — Jean ton copain’.

Original shipping carton with title in pencil on one side. A fine copy with the original packaging. First edition of 500 copies. Flower Is consists of three bodies of work. It begins with photographs taken in Paris of flowers, flower sellers, and chance encounters on the street, continues in a car factory in Detroit and ends with polaroids made in Mabou Mines, Nova Scotia. ‘By 1949 I had lived in New York City for two years. When I returned to Paris, I was 26. The beauty of that city touched me. Every day I would go out to look at the way Parisians sold and loved their flowers. Returning to America I began to look at Americans. and began to photograph the city and factory which produced the American car. The summer of 1955 was hot and after two days at the River Rouge Plant in Detroit I was told to leave the factory. I travelled south and was astonished to see black people treated as inferiors. I experienced the suspicion against anything not “American”. I was learning about American determination to win. It was a society respecting Power and Money. Flowers of Paris is memory. After the publication of The Americans in 1959, a slow fade begins. Filmmaking replaces the single frame photograph.’ The Photobook: A History I 264; Auer 670. Seller Inventory # ABE-1471898568801
