The Americans vs. American Photographs

In the tourney last week Evans edged Arbus, 103-77 while Frank took out Sander, 120-77. Now it's down to the heavyweights, Walker Evans' American Photographs and the book it helped spawn, Robert Frank's The Americans. Was there ever any doubt these two would face off eventually?

Here's the bracket.


The poll is in the right sidebar through Tuesday, 4/26 at midnight Pacific. I'll reveal the winner on 4/27. Have fun voting.

As for B, sorry I haven't posted much lately. It has been a crazy week with travel/family/deadlines, etc. Hopefully I can get back to some regularity soon. Stay tuned.
