184 BoweryYou are standing at the former home and studio of Swiss-born photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank (b. 1924). Frank's landmark 1958 book, The Americans "changed the nature of photography, what it could say and how it could say it ...it remains perhaps the most influential photography book of the 20th century," according to critic Sean O'Hagan (The Guardian, 2014). Frank's films include the Beat Generation classic Pull My Daisy (1959) and the notorious Rolling Stones documentary Cocksucker Blues (1972). Later, Frank expanded into photomontage and music video work.
