Robert Frank and the Women at White Tower

Hearing that photographer Robert Frank has died and seeing appreciations of some of his great photographs reminded me of the most fascinating of all my picture books, The Family of Man, a collection of 503 photos from a sweeping international exhibition that toured the world from 1955 to 1963.

Robert Frank has seven photos in the collection, including this image of a group of women at the White Tower lunch counter.

Frank snapped several photos of these women. It’s fun to try to arrange them chronologically.
