Robert Frank’s The Americans was not supposed to show the United States in a negative light. In fact it was meant to show the world who the Americans are and how they lived. Unfortunately at the time, racism and racial segregation was part of the daily life. Robert Frank took photos everyday and everywhere he went to show American life to the world. However, many of the photos were not acceptable to Americans. Because of the pure nature of the photos, I believe they are the best photos that anyone could have taken at the time to truly show American life. Robert Frank’s photos is artistic just because of how true it is to the main objective. The darker side of America that no one knew about is what is most artistic about his photos. Politics also played a huge role due to the negative effects of Robert’s photos. Usually American’s were seen in a positive light but for the first time it showed the negative and hostile environment American’s lived in.
