Robert Frank in Berlin

Share:

A showcase of early works by iconic Swiss-American photographer Robert Frank opens at the C/O Berlin on September 12, 2019 and continues until November 30, 2019.

In 1955, Robert Frank (1924 – 2019) became the first European-born photographer to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship in order to create a photo reportage on the USA. His images of poverty, racism and social division culminated in the publication ‘The Americans’ (1959), which changed the course of 20th century photography. At the time, Frank was working with a Leica III along with 35, 50 and 90mm lenses – all of which are now housed at the Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey.

‘Robert Frank. Unseen’ comprises a selection of works from the early stages of the photographer’s career – including contact sheets, first editions and vintage prints, along with previously unpublished and little-known photographs taken in his native Switzerland and on his travels through Europe and South America. The showcase also includes a collection of images of 1950s America which remained unpublished for editorial reasons, along with iconic excerpts from ‘The Americans’.

The opening will take place on Thursday, 12 September 2019 from 7 pm.
