Last summer PLANET magazine covered the re-release of Robert Frank’s photo book, “The Americans” and now they're featuring the the 83-photo-set again. The traveling collection that began in Washington, D.C. brings the images to life and can now be seen at SFMOMA through August 23, before heading East to the Met in NY from September 22–December 27, 2009. To learn more about Frank and preview several images check out the blog.
