In 1955, Robert Frank travelled across the USA. A cowboy, a tattooed man napping in a park, the suffering of a woman at the funeral of someone dear to her, a shoeshine man, a highway, women clinking glasses… In 1958, just 84 of his images were published, to general indifference.

Over time, the book became a classic. Mocked as sad, perverse or even subversive by the American press at the time, the book’s importance has grown over the years. Photographers, critics and the general public came to hail Robert Frank’s work as truly innovative.

The book is in no way a reportage. It is less the story of one man’s journey across the USA than a collection of notes jotted down in haste by a tormented soul.
