Robert Frank is 90

Robert Frank, the distinguished photographer whose work in The Americans redefined fine art photography in the middle of the 20th century, is now 90 years old. 

Frank's unflinching look at 1950's America produced many of the iconic photographs of that era, including a number made in the American South (see Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA, above, and Trolley, New Orleans, below) .

There are a thorough, and thoughtful, profiles of Frank in the Guardian newspaper, HERE, and HERE.
