The 1959 publication of photographer Robert Frank’s The Americans was one of the milestones of 20th-century art – a creation that changed the world’s perception both of art photography and of America itself.

Now, an exhibit at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University provides new insight into this seminal work, offering a look at dozens of rarely-seen images made by Frank during the time he was shooting The Americans but not included in the book. KQED Newsroom’s Thuy Vu visited the Cantor to see what new light the exhibit, Robert Frank in America, sheds on the artist and his process.
