B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 26 SEPT. 09

In 1955, the young photographer Robert Frank embarked on a criss-cross odyssey of the U.S. The result was one of the great collections/exhibitions in 20th century photography, The Americans, with Jack Kerouac writing the introduction to the original release of the book (of the same name). There will be a re-visiting of these photographs (and hundreds not included in the final collection) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, from now until Jan. 2010. Check out Anthony Lane's latest article on Frank, his work, The Americans and the new show in the 14 Sept. 09 issue of The New Yorker. Pictured here is a photo from Frank's The Americans, entitled, "Indianapolis."

I'm sorry I missed the Frank show when it was in San Francisco at the SFMOMA. Have you been there?
