Robert Frank, who died last week at the age of 94, was one of the true giants in the history of photography. Known first and foremost for his 1958 book The Americans, a raw, all-encompassing portrait of America's post-War society, ​the Swiss-born master spent his life's work in pursuit of his art: through photographs, film and a variety of experimental media. To mark his life and death, OneShot offers this self-portrait from 1993 in his adopted hometown of New York, with an audio excerpt from a 2011 interview in Paris.
