Photographer Robert Frank’s lens on American life

Robert Frank was among the most influential photographers of the 20th century, known for vividly capturing the quirks and social divisions of everyday American life. His work was distinguished by a unique artistic style as well as a focus on what was “beneath the surface.” Frank, who befriended Jack Kerouac and provided art for a Rolling Stones album, died Monday at age 94.
