Robert Frank is considered one of the greatest photographers of the last century, but the man behind the camera always remained enigmatic. 

Long-term friend and assistant, Brian Graham, provides an insider's look at Frank's life, with his new book published by Steidl – Goin' Down the Road with Robert Frank. The book provides photographs made between 1979-2019, capturing behind-the-scenes images of Frank at work, but also an insight into his personal life, showing memories of a life lived in front of and behind the lens.
