Storylines.

Photographs by Robert Frank. Essays by Philip Brookman and Ian Penman.
Steidl, Gottingen, 2004. Unpaged, 25 color and 225 duotone illustrations, 9¾x11".

Robert Frank needs no introduction to the readership of this magazine, but his lesser known work in film generally requires something of an explanation. After The Americans was published in 1958, Frank abandoned traditional photography in search of a more narrative approach. The films Pull My Daisy from 1960 and Conversations in Vermont from 1969 advanced what was then seen as a rather innovative methodology, combining autobiography and poetry with a gritty intensity. Storylines, a catalogue to the Fall exhibition at the Tate Modern in London includes images from four pioneering bodies of work: Peru, 1949, London, 1951-52, Wales, 1953 and Black White and Things, 1952. Note that Frank produced all of these bodies of work before The Americans, giving the audience real insight into the visual matrix that led Frank to produce The Americans. Storylines also contains stills from his films, a previously unseen series of photographs, Stories, 2002, as well as many outtakes from The Americans never before seen. Storylines is bound in a flexible, durable, vinyl binding. Read Publisher's Description.
