“FARGO STREET” by W. Scott Olsen – The first monographic photography book from FRAMES

Street photography is one of the most exciting, dynamic, and insightful approaches to articulating and understanding the ways we live. Always serendipitous, always in the moment, street photography captures fleeting moments that reveal deep currents and emotions. We see ourselves as unguarded and honest.

While street photography has a long tradition in iconic cities such as New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Seoul, this style of image-making is equally revealing in smaller cities. Who we are on the street is a universal discovery.

At FRAMES, we are tremendously happy to announce our first photo monograph:

FARGO STREET by W. Scott Olsen

In 100 black-and-white images, all in square format, Olsen turns his street photography eye toward learning the character of a small town on the North American prairie. Spanning all four seasons, with attention to people, architecture, weather, and landscape, the book illuminates nuance and depth.

Already receiving praise from people such as Ami Vitale (National Geographic photographer and Founder of Vital Impacts), David Little (former Executive Director of ICP – International Center for Photography), Jose Lopez (former picture editor for The New York Times), and Sean Tucker (internationally lauded photographer and filmmaker), FARGO STREET is a compelling, funny, anger-making, intriguing look at Fargo, North Dakota, a town everyone finds surprising.

I hope you will join the audience of this exciting project.
