After completing his seminal photography book The Americans in 1958, Robert Frank put aside the still image and concentrated throughout the 1960s on film-making. He only returned to still photography in the 1970s, using a Polaroid camera with black-and-white positive/negative film. These images were frequently layered with text, which Frank inscribed by hand onto the Polaroid negative. He found that these works allowed him more freedom to "destroy that image, that perfect image." In recent years Frank has worked almost exclusively with Polaroids, exploring the collage and assemblage possibilities of the instant photograph.
Originally announced as Robert Frank: Polaroids, This slipcased collection of small, staple-bound books represents a new stage in the practice of a remarkable artist who continually challenges the limits of photography and film, and strives to avoid repeating himself. It brings together seven sequences of single new images compiled by Frank. As always, the photographs and stories relate Frank's life and milieu--his homes in Mabou and New York, for example, or trips to China and Spain.

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) was one of the great innovators of twentieth century American photography. He began his career by joining the camera club at Chrysler Motors in 1938. Inspired by Ansel Adams, whom he met in 1941, Callahan improved his technique and swiftly developed an artistic voice. In 1946, he was hired by László Moholy-Nagy to teach photography at the Institute of Design in Chicago. In 1961, he moved to Providence, Rhode Island and taught at the Rhode Island School of Design, retiring in 1977. He established his reputation with black and white materials, but also fully explored color photography, especially from the late 1960s onwards. Callahan's work was widely published and exhibited during his lifetime, and was the subject of a major retrospective at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, in 1996.
