"Continues the journey through his archives, presenting us with a new series of images of friends, colleagues, interiors, of quiet still lives and snapshots of both ordinary and unexpected objects and situations. Constitutes an important part of both his later work and the art of the photobook" (Gerhard Steidl). "He can portray real pain and capture profound depths of human emotion better than almost any other photographer; indeed, better than almost any other artist in any medium" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). Robert Frank died on September 9, 2019 at the age of 94 as the greatest photographer of our time. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Frank collectors.
