Robert Frank is an American photographer and documentary filmmaker of Swiss origin, born November 9, 1924 in Zurich. His most notable work is the book published in 1958 titled “The Americans”. It will happen in 1947 in New York and his words will be:

“March 1947 I arrived in New York A new life begins I thought.. I’m lucky.”

You will find lots of information about this great man of street photography on the web. I respect the man and the admirable work done for many years, it is profoundly human.
Happy Birthday Sir.
