Robert Frank | London & Wales

Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

  • […] http://blog.ricecracker.net/2010/05/19/robert-frank-london-wales/ I like the fact that this really shows off an industrial side to the image. What I get from the image to tell me this is the clothing especially the hat which suggests its a hat for a man that works in farming or the mines. The way the group are all together in the background following suggests they work for the main figure at the front or they are all a friendly group. The long clothing I can see suggests they work in this type of industry too. Especially in the group at the back it looks like they are strolling to or from work. The dirt I see all on the main figure’s face at the front suggests he is a miner especially. Finally the cobbled houses suggests it was around a 20th century time even without looking at the year it was made. […]

  • As a photographer who traveled throughout England and Wales between 1975-78 to document British life, I am excited to learn about this book that Robert Frank produced.
    My book, “The British Seen: a photographic journal 1973-1978”,comprised of 78 images, is being published in 2017.
