ROBERT FRANK: BOOKS AND FILM, 1947-2016. Ed. by Alex Ruhle. Steidl Verlag, Gottingen, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 64 pp. with 242 ills. 58 x 40 cm. ISBN 9783869309866 In English.
Publisher's description: Issued in a pack of five copies, Robert Frank: Books and Film, 1947-2016 (a special edition of the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, following its original design and format) is the unconventional catalogue to a recent retrospective exhibition at New York University, featuring interviews, essays, letters and opinion pieces alongside rich picture sequences printed on newsprint. The exhibition presented six decades of books and films made by Robert Frank (born 1924) against the background of his iconic photographs. These images were shown in an immediate and straightforward way -- printed on nearly 10-foot sheets of newsprint and installed unframed on the wall -- and contextualized with information about Frank's life, his working processes and broader cultural history. Robert Frank: Books and Film, 1947-2016 recreates the raw, innovative approach of the exhibition in an unpretentious and accessible printed object. Frank himself summarizes the appeal of the "catalogue": "Cheap, quick and dirty, that's how I like it!"
