The Robert Frank Collection includes over 8,000 items and spans Frank's prolific career from 1937-2005. Only a few hundred of those are viewable online so far, but it's still a glorious treat to examine over 100 contact sheets and over 400 photos from locations such as Peru, New York, and New Orleans.
Collections like these are essential to spreading knowledge to people who may not have access to large museums or libraries of photo books. Let's hope the National Gallery of Art keeps adding images to their online database so us photographers can keep salivating. [via NYT Lens]
