Robert Frank in Conversation with Howard Norman: Beirut

At 80 Robert Frank, the renowned photographer of The Americans, will make a rare personal appearance and reveal the ideas and work behind his new book, Come Again, a facsimile reprint of a sketch book he had originally made in Beirut during 1991. At that time, Frank was invited to Beirut on a commission to photograph the devastated downtown of the city following the end of the Lebanese civil war. Together with the work of five other photographers, his work was included in a book, Beirut City Centre in 1992. But alongside his work on this commission, he made numerous Polaroids of the destroyed city that he stored in his studio on his return home. Many years later he has reconsidered these images by publishing a previously unseen artist’s book that offers insight into the early stages of the artist’s experimentation with the Polaroid medium.
