"I am always looking outside, trying to look inside, trying to say something that is true. But maybe nothing is really true. Except what's out there. And what's out there is constantly changing." Robert Frank, 1985
I've become quite obsessed with and inspired by the work of Robert Frank lately. I recently shared some of it here when I blogged about an exhibit of his work at a Chelsea gallery. This weekend I went to a show of his work from The Americans and the Black, White and Things collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If you're in New York, you should definitely go check out the exhibition.
Also, if you get it in your area, you should check out all of the fantastic photography programs this week on Ovation. Ovation is an arts channel and they currently have a week-long photography event that you cannot miss. If you're in New York and have Time Warner Cable, it's channel 83. They happen to be showing a special on Robert Frank's America that I think is going to be fantastic.
Oh course I am in no way comparing myself to him but I think everyone is inspired by someone or something...Here is some of my work that has been influenced by him - these were all taken in New York City:
