From the Publisher: In 1958, the first edition of Robert Frank's The Americans was published in Paris. Les Americains contained Frank's 83 photographs in the same sequence as all subsequent editions, with the image on the right hand page, but juxtaposed with historical texts about American society and politics, gathered by Alain Bosquet. The following year, in the first American edition, the French texts were removed and an introduction by Jack Kerouac was added. Over the subsequent 50 years, The Americans has been republished in many editions, in numerous languages, with a variety of cover designs and even in a range of sizes. It is the most famous photography book ever published, and it changed the face of the medium forever. Robert Frank discussed with his publisher, Gerhard Steidl, the idea of producing a new edition using modern scanning and the finest tritone printing. The starting point was to bring original prints from New York to Gottingen, Germany, where Steidl is based. In July 2007, Frank visited Gottingen. A new format for the book was worked out and new typography selected. A new cover was designed and Frank chose the book cloth, foil for embossing and the endpaper. Most significantly, as he has done for every edition of The Americans, Frank changed the cropping of many of the photographs, usually including more information. Two images were changed completely from the original 1958 and 1959 editions.… (mais)

"THE" fundamental book for the evolution of American photography in the second part of the XX century. ( )

Publicado por primera vez en Francia en 1958, luego en los Estados Unidos en 1959, The Americans de Robert Frank cambió el curso de la fotografía del siglo XX. Publicado por primera vez en Francia en 1958, luego en los Estados Unidos en 1959, The Americans de Robert Frank cambió el curso del siglo XX. fotografía del siglo XIX. En 83 fotografías, Frank miró debajo de la superficie de la vida estadounidense para revelar un pueblo plagado de racismo, mal atendido por sus políticos y entumecido por una cultura de consumo en rápida expansión. Sin embargo, también encontró nuevas áreas de belleza en rincones sencillos y pasados ​​por alto de la vida estadounidense. Y no fue solo el tema de Frank (automóviles, máquinas de discos e incluso la carretera misma) lo que redefinió los íconos de Estados Unidos; también era su estilo aparentemente intuitivo, inmediato y descentrado, así como su método de vincular brillantemente sus fotografías temática, conceptual, formal y lingüísticamente, que hizo que The Americans fuera tan innovador. Más una oda o un poema que un documento literal, el libro es tan poderoso y provocativo hoy como lo fue hace 56 años.

Interesting book of American photographs from the '50s. Reflects the society of the time: youth problems, racism, etc. Considered a classic. The book came out in 1959, but the photography trip was from 1955. ( )

When I discovered “The Americans,” by Robert Frank as a student, it changed not only my career but how I approached all my subjects when I was working as a photographer. Probably one of the best collection of images ever assembled in one project. ( )

These images are surely the progenitors of modern photographic social commentary, and they are poignant and affecting, but I wasn’t wowed. I probably should try to appreciate them for their historical context, but that’s a drab, dull way to interact with art.
Also, I did not appreciate Kerouac’s repetitive, pretentious foreward. Yes, yes - you make up words that sound like feelings. Aren’t you amazing?! ( )

[Frank] wanted to portray "the kind of civilization born here and spreading elsewhere." And he succeeded not only in recording how the country looked but in capturing its essence, so that The Americans still seems like an accurate portrait of how it feels to live here.
