    I'm amazed that there is someone else here that reads photography articles.

    Robert Frank is the most important living photographer in America, and that's your take away from the article? Another example of this site being a Boyz with Toyz camera gear forum, having virtually nothing to do with photography.

    Yeah, what gives? The man posts an interesting article about a legendary photographer, and you immediately swoop down with the snide remarks.

    Definitely an interesting read, puts his life into a perspective and context I was not familiar with.

    I happened to have bought 'The Americans' from Amazon 2 weeks ago.
    Now, when I started reading this article, I thought Well, here is another world famous highly acclaimed photographer, I had never heart of. The name didn't ring a bell.
    Only after reading into this article, I found that this is THE MAN.

    Very nice reading by the way and thank you for sharing.
