Summary "Robert Frank's The Americans (1958) transformed the landscape of contemporary photography. An exile from Europe, Frank criss-crossed the United States with his camera, searching for the uncomfortable truths of his adopted home. The resulting book was the defining work of photographic art in the 20th century. Fifty years later, French director Philippe Séclier decided to follow in his footsteps, retracing his path step by step. He explores the spirit of the Beat Generation by examining the impact of Frank's book, not only on the art of photography, but also on American culture. He tracks down the subjects of the photos, while also eliciting thoughts and comments from painter Ed Ruscha, photographer Raymond Depardon, and a series of leading historians and curators."--Container.
