Robert Frank’s father, Henry (1890–1976), was both the proprietor of a bicycle shop in Zurich, and a keen amateur photographer. Father Photographer makes public for the first time a selection of Henry Frank’s photographs including landscapes, family portraits, still-lifes and cityscapes.
A couple of years ago, Gerhard Steidl found at a Robert Frank’s sudio wooden boxes containing the complete archive of his father’s stereophotographs. In 2008 that box and the fragile photographic glass plates within it were handescorted to Steidl in Göttingen, where they were scanned in tritone in preparation for this book. Designed by Robert Frank, Father Photographer reveals Henry Frank to be both a talented photographer and a keen traveller. His pictures include snow-capped Alps and lakes in Switzerland, views of Venice, Pisa and Florence, and depictions of his family and friends including the young Robert. Henry Frank also reveals a passion for modern means of transport in images of aeroplanes, ships, hot-air balloons, and a car fair at the Grand Palais in Paris. Father Photographer is a revelation of the unknown photographer Henry Frank, a historical photographic document of the early twentieth century, as well as a new chapter in Robert Frank’s ongoing bookmaking.
