The Americans

The Robert Frank exhibit (The Americans: Looking in) just came down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York yesterday after over three months of being on exhibit. The Americans is probably one of the most well-known collection of reportage photos in the history of photojournalism. Throughout 1955-1956, this guy drove around photographing this country, he made a huge collection of photos -- both huge moments and intimate small ones. The bottom line is the book succeeded in telling a great story. Check it out if you ever get the chance, you won't be disappointed.
Hope you all had a great new years -- Here's looking into 2010!

Over and Out,

That scrawny cowboy seriously could be my Uncle Buster. And, yes, I really do have an Uncle Buster.

All these photo images of America from a by-gone past. Usually relegated to the Archives, of hoew we used to be.
Yes, I felt like I knew some of the people in the photos.
