In 1950, Robert Frank, a key figure in photographic history, was born in Zurich in 1924 and immigrated to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans, first published in 1959, which gave rise to a distinct new form in the photobook, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy (1959). Frank’s other projects include the books Black White and Things (1954) and The Lines of My Hand (1972), and the film Cocksucker Blues (1972) documenting the Rolling Stones. His awards include the Erich Salomon Prize (1985), the Hasselblad Award (1996), the Cornell Capa Award (1999) and the PHotoEspaña Award (2007) amongst others. Frank divides his time between New York City and Nova Scotia, Canada.
