"Robert Frank's photographs... document a small corner of our history but they also set forth the struggle and spirit that defines the character of a place and its people. His expressive combination of chronicle and testament in this work opens a doorway through which to view that spirit." (Philipp Brookmann quoted in Brookmann 2003, cover text).
