I was in New Orleans in July 2007. I was at the site where Robert Frank made his now famous photograph of people on the trolley. I made an image of homage. I was struck by how things have changed since the late 50’s when Frank made his picture.
I was further inspired to photograph people on the street, with an intent of just looking very closely at what is, what do people look like on this street corner, on this day in time. I worked three hours from primarily one spot at the corner of Canal and Bourbon streets. I edited the work into a book entitled SOME AMERICANS, with obvious reference to Robert Frank’s famous work.
