Way of Seeing Post

Author: Robert Frank. Title: "Robert Frank: London/Walse"

This photograph was also taken by Robert Frank. What immediately caught my eye was the vertical separation of the image. The black and white contrast is clearly and separately shown in the picture; the left side is dominated in black and the right side is dominated in white. Similar to the Trolly image, we can cut this photograph in half and have two separate, vibrant images. Like the Trolly photograph, this image shows the differences between two classes of people. The coal miner wears dirty cloth and is doing more physical work. The bankers wear nicer clothes, top hats, and do less physical work. What is similar though is that they are all moving and they are all working to support themselves.
