I really liked the work by Robert Frank, not only does he capture people in their rawest forms, he also captures their surroundings. I think this is great in photography because it lets the viewer know what was going on during the time the photograph was taken. The only question that came to my mind during the film is if Robert really wanted to be a photographer or was it because he was still amazed with the view finder his father showed him as a child. Like the firm stated he thought it was like magic and maybe it just continued throughout his life.
