IIRC the National Gallery of Art had a retrospective of 'The Americans' back in 2009.  It was really quite dramatic to see all the images hanging on a wall in one place.  Frank's vision was acute and his documentation of a troubled period will stand the test of time.

A lot of fame and a lot of personal pain.

Perhaps the outsider sees things the most clearly.

R.I.P.
