THE AMERICANS

Robert Frank's poetic tour across the United States in the mid 1950's painted an unescapable portrait of a country filled with class and cultural distinctions. Showing the highs and lows of a time gone by with struggles we still fight today. The Americans serves as the launchpad for the compositions, moments and scenerios we might encounter in a machine filled society.
