“One of the idiosyncrasies of Robert Frank’s work is his constant preference for the book format as the ideal way to present his images. The sequence established in viewing one page after the other is in some way similar to the cinematic tempo of his film work and enables the relationship between images to be shown in a way that is more akin to Frank’s intentions.

The catalogue accompanying the exhibition – HOLD STILL_keep going – which takes its name from one of the photographs exhibited, has also been produced as an artist’s book.”  Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía
