Brian C. Frank is an award-winning freelance photojournalist from Des Moines, Iowa. Photographing for The New York Times, Reuters and Polaris Images, Brian’s images have been seen in publications and on websites around the world. Selections from Fight Night have been shown on the New York Times Lens blog, Burn Magazine, and in gallery exhibits in Des Moines, Minneapolis and New York. Brian began studying photography on a part-time basis as a creative outlet. Those classes quickly developed into a passion, but he did not know what he wanted to do. It was not until the first anniversary of hurricane Katrina that he found the direction. Always being a bit of an activist, Brian was angered that a year after the hurricane hit, a great city like New Orleans was still in ruins. After spending a week in New Orleans photographing the devastation and talking to the residents, he found that telling stories with the camera was what he needed to do.
