"When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice." Set of renowned photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank’s third installment of his celebrated visual diaries. As with his landmark series The Americans (1958), this late double-volume series similarly presents the possibilities of pictorial non-narratives. Employing a more diaristic approach, Frank includes reminiscences, fragments of conversations, verses, and thoughts to accompany portraits of friends, family, house, studio, urban landscapes, and interiors. These intimate compositions were later presented at New York’s Pace/Macgill gallery (the opening reception program for which is laid in). Illustrated with color and black-and-white plates. Fine in original slipcases. Item #3133
