Today we congratulate Robert Frank on his 92nd birthday. The Swiss-born photographer became a tireless and penetrating investigator of American life, crisscrossing the nation and depicting it from every angle. His work is too well-known to require any comment from us, apart from the suggestion that now seems an important moment to contemplate the state of the Union, in the mirror of Frank’s lens and otherwise.
