Meeting Robert Frank

Published 2017 February 24

Excuse me, Sir. Are you Robert Frank?


I love your work. I have The Americans and New York to Nova Scotia. May I take a picture with you?

No, some other time. Where do you live?

West Harlem, 144th Street.

Maybe another time.

Another time? Okay. It was really nice to meet you.

What’s your name?

I’m Simon Griffee.


Griffee. I’ll come back at another time, if that’s okay. My father passed away some years ago.

Yes, okay.
