Voici un livre de Robert Frank (un des 3 pieds du tabouret sur lequel je pose mon appareil photo).
Son titre : THANK YOU.
Il est signé ROBERT FRANK publié par les éditions SCALO, mais il ne contient aucune de ses photographies et ce n’est pas vraiment paradoxal.
C’est le symbole d’une marque d’amitié aux personnes qui ont soutenu, encouragé, aidé et aimé ce photographe en lui envoyant des images, des cartes postales, et qui ont été édités.
Un livre modeste par sa taille, unique, merveilleusement bien imprimé et très émouvant.
Bien sûr il y a « les Américains », «  The lines of my hand », « Moving out », « Come again » « Hold still ………. Keep on going »…  Tous ses livres sont somptueux mais celui-ci méritait d’exister.

.......Robert Frank........MERCI ...

Here is a book of Robert Frank (one of the three legs of the stool on which i put my camera).
The title : THANK YOU.
It is signed by Robert Frank, published by SCALO, but there is no photograph of Robert Frank inside, and it is not really paradoxical.
It is the mark of friendship to the people who supported, encouraged, helped and loved him in sending to him images, postcards, and which has been published.
A modest book, unique, beautifully printed and very moving.
Of course  there are « The Americans », « The lines of my hand », « Moving out », « Come again » « Hold still ………. Keep on going »… All of them are sumptuous but this one deserved to exist.

.........Robert Frank..........THANK YOU...
