Don't blink: Robert Frank
31 January 2017 | by zerozroSee all my reviews

Robert Frank's "The Americas" won me over as a fan of his work years ago. His images spoke to me as a photographer on a human level. I ventured into the cinema to watch "Don't Blink: Robert Frank" and was led by the hand though the thought process of a man I admire. His keen eye and interest in people not only capture the New York City dirty years but also a slice of the people that made the 70's great and memorable. The soundtrack is kicka$$ but importantly this documentary takes you on a historical journey unfiltered through the eyes of Robert Frank. Kudos to the Director Laura Israel for bringing this brilliant film to the cinema.
