robert frank inspires
While working on the rooftop of the Canadian embassy during the Obama inauguration, I noticed that there was a Robert Frank exhibit right across the street at the national gallery. I was able to slip away for a couple hours to check it out. Turns out that they were showing all 83 images from Franks’ “The Americans” book. The images are unbelievable. He has such a sense for finding a huge tonal range on the darkside. needless to say, this image was made later that night, while returning to union station in washington. it’s rare for me to see such a quick return on inspiration.
