398bd100ab1ae90a1a0736c07712ccfeRobert Frank (born Nov 9, 1924) is a Swiss photograher and documentary filmmaker, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1947. He is considered one of the most influential figures in the history of photography.

His monograph «The Americans», first published in 1958,  is one of the most influential photo books of all-time. It features photographs taken by Robert Frank in the mid-1950s as he traveled across the U.S. on a Guggenheim fellowship. Text for this book was written by the American novelist Jack Kerouac.

In the 1950s, Frank was a regular contributor to Harper’s Bazaar, but later turned his focus from still images to filmmaking.

Perhaps Frank’s best-known film is Cocksucker blues . It chronicled The Rolling Stones
american tour 1972 in support of their album «Exile on Main Street». The film was embargoed by the band and banned by censors. In 1977, Frank went to court and won the right to exhibit Cocksucker Blues…

Paris, I love you!

I am so proud of you

Kate Loran

It’s been almost two weeks since I finally moved to Paris. A beautiful and inspiring city, full of light and dreams. This is a magical lieu that has always taken a special place in my heart. And now I know why.

I dreamed of living in Paris since I first saw Romeo et Juliette, a musical by Gerard Presgurvic. I was 14 years old, and in love with french musicals.

Now I’m 25, and I live in Paris. I have a list of comédies musicales I want to visit and people I want to meet; I have the opportunity to spend the whole day in a beautiful studio in the heart of a culinary school (oh, those tartes de citron…) and learn from a very talented french photographer Mathilde de l’Ecotais.

I’ve been told that Paris only accepts those who come here and say: bitch, I’m your master! So… the master’s here, bitch! 😉
