  • Beschrijving

    In August 1992 Robert Franks good friend and antique dealer Reginald Rankin invited Frank on a trip to Pangnirtung, a village of around 1,300 Inuit inhabitants in the Arctic Circle. This book is Frank's documentation of the five-day sojourn. Curiously Frank depicts Pangnirtung void of its people: the still harbour, public housing, a convenience store, a telephone post.

    Sincere without being sentimental, the photos are shaped by a short text from Frank himself, Prefabricated homes along the main road in Pangnirtung. At times a decorated window reflections inside or outside. Stones maybe the balance of a big sky above.

    Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1924 and immigrated to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans , first published in 1958, which gave rise to a distinct new form in the photo-book, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy , made in 1959. Franks other important projects include the books Black White and Things , 1952, and The Lines of My Hand , 1972, and the film Cocksucker Blues for the Rolling Stones , 1972. He divides his time between New York City and Nova Scotia, Canada.
