Robert Frank is a humble photographer who makes humble books. Despite this humility – or perhaps because of it – Frank has produced some of the most important books in the history of photography. Steidl has long been committed to producing with Frank the definitive editions of books such as The Americans and Black White and Things, which have gone through many re-printings over the years, often without Frank’s approval or knowledge. This season sees the release of the next instalment of Frank’s Complete Film Works, as well as two books that reveal Frank’s approach to book-making now. The re-edition of 2010’s Tal Uf Tal Ab and the new You Would combine recent photographs, classic images and autobiographical texts in two affordable softcover volumes which possess an unassuming authority.
