I think Robert Frank’s photographs are artistic yet simple. The idea of him capturing photographs from his view doesn’t surprise me. The way most photographs are taken are based on how the photographer wants you to view it. His photos have an artistic theme because he’s telling a story throughout each photo but its not straight forward. He gives details where you have to look deeper to find out what the issue is or what he’s trying to say. He took a lot of pictures of African Americans. I was surprised that this was his first encounter with segregation. A good point was pointed out on how African Americans weren’t good enough to sit next to but good enough to watch their children. It didn’t make sense. Robert Frank captured photographs of ordinary people doing everyday things so that’s what makes it simple.
