Du: Part Two.
Photographs by Robert Frank.
Scalo, Zurich, 2003. 100 pp., 13 color and 60 back-and-white illustrations, 9x13".
In 1962 the German magazine du published an issue simply entitled The Photographer Robert Frank. They have published nothing by him since-until now. Having agreed to a second installment, Frank states of the magazine, "You make beautiful issues. I'm astonished at the things you think of. 1962 was good work, you know. And I can tell you want something from me." Part Two includes 62 page-spreads of imagery and text. Also released in late Spring is London/Wales, photographs Frank made during a lengthy visit to the United Kingdom in 1951. The show of ninety photographs from which this book is derived was organized by Philip Brookman of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. This trip predates Frank's searing work in The Americans by several years; his aptitude and discerning eye are in full effect, however, even at this early stage. The photography community's fixation upon the The Americans is broken by this addition, representing a much-needed step towards a fuller understanding of this complex artist.
