Focus 45: Will Green on Robert Frank’s "The Americans"
On Saturday June 14, 2014 from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm in Curtis Theatre
On Flag Day, William Green, curatorial assistant in the Department of Photography, will discuss artist Robert Frank's seminal photobook, The Americans. First published in France in 1958, and then in the United States the following year, The Americans is today widely recognized as one of the most important books in twentieth-century photography. Green's talk will focus on the history of the book, its intricate image sequencing, and its most prominent motif: the American ﬂag.
