This is one of Robert Franks images from his book “The Americans” toke somewhere in America in the 1950’s. The young woman in the photograph is unknown and in the book this certain picture has no captions. The image set in a cafe is taken as if Frank himself is standing behind the counter observing  the young woman, she has dark hair and is quite a bold object in the picture and even though you are draw to her face at first glance the advertising signs behind her head are very distracting. The wall hanging of Santa in the background almost echo the woman’s face which brings a slight humour to the photograph.  Robert Frank’s
