Presentation by Red Hook Editions :

"While working as a guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Jason Eskenazi began to ask photographers he knew visiting the exhibition "Looking In : Robert Frank's The Americans", to choose their favorite image and why. In the years since he quit, as he himself got back out on the road again to shoot, he complied hundreds of photographers’ answers in this unique book destined to become a classic in photography education.

Includes contributions from Robert Frank himself, Mary Ellen Mark, Joel Meyerowitz, Jeffrey Ladd, Martin Parr, Philip Perkis, David Alan Harvey, Bill Burke, Josef Koudelka, John Gossage, Juliana Beasley, Sara Terry, Mark Steinmetz, Vanessa Winship, Alec Soth, Red Hook Editions partners Peter van Agtmael, Glenna Gordon, Alan Chin, and many more."

A book without photography about a monument of the photobook medium. This book complies 276 answers to the question and - beyond the gimmick of the initial idea - it carries an educational virtue as it provides multiple interpretations of the images in the series and turns out to be a form of exegesis of The Americans, an analysis of its reach and impact in photography until today.
