Catalogue of the exhibition 'Robert Frank | Books and Film, 1947–2014 ', a special edition of the Süddeutsche Zeitung — in original format and typography.

Robert Frank is considered the inventor of street photography. Many of his pictures were shot from the hip , from the moving car in the middle of a bar or even hidden in the park. 'I had to be very fast easy when I photographed people,' he says about the way he has made the mid-fifties on his tour of America 's pictures . Very quickly must also Zeitung wrote in the afternoon , at night printed in the morning in the mailbox. So it is therefore only logical that Frank's recordings for once not worth millions assured Gelatin Silver Prints are shown framed for eternity , but on paper, from which the Süddeutsche Zeitung is made every day. The complete works of Robert Frank is printed by Gerhard Steidl by acrylic inkjet printing on up to four meters long paths of newspaper and then glued directly onto the walls. As Frank himself first heard at his home in the Canadian Mabou from this show idea, he said: 'Cheap, quick, and dirty, that's how I like it!'.

The exhibition was conceived by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl. It shows his life's work in pictures, books and movies. The films are after extensive restoration for the first time in decades fully available.

Robert Frank has wanted the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich for the premiere of his exhibition , a place to experience his art to the young people.
