Sad sad news to have to report this morning, Allen’s dear friend (and our dear friend) the extraordinary groundbreaking documentary photographer, (as the New York Times puts it, “one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century”), Robert Frank died yesterday at his home in Inverness, Nova Scotia. He was 94.

Here’s Robert on what he learned from the Beats. We’ll miss you, we’ll really miss you, Robert.
