Flower Iscan be regarded as "an eminently fitting apotheosis for stream-of-consciousness photography It is primarily a memorial volume to Franks daughter, who was killed in an airplane crash in 1974 The whole tenor of the book is forlorn, which may be the adjective that best describes Franks work as a whole It reveals an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself" (Parr & Badger).
