Robert Frank was born on November 9, 1924 in Zurich Switzerland. He started photographing to escape from the business-like compounds of his home. His first photo book 40 Fotos was created in 1946, and marked the start of his photographic career. In 1947 Frank emigrated to New York and worked as a photojournalist for various magazines. His photos reflect the outsider’s view of America, as well as American life post WWII. Frank is a master at connecting shapes, patterns and lines in his photography.
