Robert Frank is considered the inventor of street photography. Conceived by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl, this exhibition shows Frank’s work in photos, books and films. The form of presentation is as simple as can be: Frank’s images are printed on sheets of newsprint and hung directly on the wall. In addition, Frank’s films are shown which are so often overshadowed by his photographic work. When the show is over, the images are going to be completely destroyed. When this idea for an exhibition first reached Frank in his small, crooked house in the Canadian village of Mabou, he said: "Cheap, quick, and dirty, that’s how I like it!"
The exhibition’s next venues will be Appenzell, Switzerland and Tokyo, Japan before continuing to visit about 40 additional cities around the globe in 2017. 

Robert Frank: Books and Films 1947–2016 at Bergamot Station is realized by Steidl in conjunction with UCLA College. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Steve Tisch Foundation and Shoshana and Wayne Blank.
