Robert Dunn - Meeting Robert Frank
Meeting Robert Frank

"Meeting Robert Frank is just that. The photographer saw Frank at a gallery opening, spoke to him (in tribute), then decided to take a photo. His digital camera, wholly unbeknownst to him, had shifted into movie mode, which he'd never used before. He didn't even know how to play back the two "shots" till he got home and read the manual. The first "shot": ceiling, elbow, black, ceiling, black. The second: black, black, and then a head swam into view. The resulting book is the clips for the wholly inadvertent movie shot as Robert Frank walked past."
