From Library Journal 
The Swiss-born Frank (who became an American citizen in 1963) is best known for his hugely influential The Americans, a book introduced by Jack Kerouac that documented the America he saw in the 1950s while on a Guggenheim Fellowship and that set a new standard for raw poetic realism in photography. Frank turned to film in the late Fifties firmly landing among the who's who of underground cinema and returned to still images in the Seventies, creating photographic constructions that often incorporate text, while continuing his film work. Much has been published by and about Frank, but this illuminating volume emphasizes his artistic process and presents an integrated nonchronological sampling from his oeuvre weighted toward his later experimental pieces. Consisting of film stills, prints, and photographic constructions, including some recent works completed since his last book (Flamingo: The Hasselblad Award 1996, Scalo, 1997), the current work offers revealing juxtapositions that make the seemingly disjointed arc of Frank's art cohesive. An interview and several highly informative essays are included, as is a short photo album that humanizes the artist for the reader and informs the personal context of his work. Filmic, multilayered, and narrative, Frank's art probes the edge and is charged with unabashed emotion the wide-ranging but highly characteristic output of this unconventional artist. This catalog, accompanying a European touring show that originated at the Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany, is highly recommended as an important addition to large art collections and an affordable introductory option for smaller libraries.

Book Description 
Robert Frank not only ranks among the most important of living photographers but is also widely recognized as a seminal figure in the development of experimental cinema. And yet, the continuity and consistency of his work in both photography and film has been barely explored. "Hold still-keep going" fills this obvious void by illustrating and analyzing the underlying aesthetics that have guided Frank's work in both media. From the very outset of his career, Frank distrusted the single photographic image and its claim to freeze moments of truth: time and again he gravitated to the moving image and serial photography, be it in book form or as a panel of photographs. Reproducing more than 100 collages, film stills and serial works, this volume will certainly become a new standard publication on Robert Frank, innovative photographer and experimental filmmaker. The book also contains an illustrated bibliography and biography featuring dozens of previously unpublished images of Robert Frank, his family and his friends. Published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition, this is an essential addition to all photography and film collections. 8.25 x 10.75 inches, 102 duotone illustrations.
