"In many ways The Lines of My Hand can be regarded as the apotheosis of stream-of-consciousness photography [...] Frank's great confessional both sums up and marks the end not only of a photographic era, but a final coming to terms with the effects of World War II and the Bomb" (Parr & Badger, "The Photobook: A History. Volume I").
"I have been going forward, travelling my road while looking out. I am listening to my voice. The landscape changes and me too. Years ago a first version of The Lines of My Hands was published. Since then many have gone a way.
I continue to look and search for an image that comes close to a truth. It is my choice, it is my fate, and I continue" (Robert Frank).
