Robert Frank’s America

Robert Frank’s photos can be considered artistic, and political at the same time. The reason being is because each photograph have a specific theme whether it’s related to the individual, or the themes that it holds, and when being viewed, it provoked some sort of reaction, or emotion out of the viewer. Frank’s photos revealed American life, even though his intention was simply curiosity, he also captured history in his photographs. As stated in the video, all his images represented America as a country, and what the country had gone through during that period of time. There were pictures of people in rallies, and an emphasis on the American flag. The subjects on those types of images can mean a myriad of things such as conflict, unity, etc. His work is also an excellent source to look back on history, and a symbolic representation of the struggles that the struggle America experienced in the past.
