Dr.  Michael Sgan –Cohen 1997 publ.  On winning Grand –Prix Osaka Triennale.

‘Frank’s photo  sculptures communicate a feeling for volume and sculptural space, projecting a high- resolution sculptural presence; they make an effective and free artistic format,original and interesting (late Dr. Michael Sgan- Cohen, artist,art-critic,Jerusalem1997) Franks works, sometimes kinky and brutal,sometimes more conceptually driven and even formalistic,once more proved to stand against a varied and international background. He is able to remain original and innovative, both in his photographic and his plastic works.

10th international award a medal from UNESCO&DIPLOMA at the 2nd INTERNATIONAL ART & SCIENCE FESTIVAL  Achaia Clauss Greece  September 2009 under the aegis of Greek Federation  for UNESCO.signed by Maronitis Ioanis VP For Europe & North America  and Panagiotis Zervas of the Zervas Gallery &Scientific Committee of the University of Patras,
and the International Scientific Artistic Committee (I.S.A.C.).

This photograph is about the state of children in war zones, the use of children as defensive shields; a canon and other weapons of war of destruction purposely placed in population centers to gain a psychological, political and military advantage. The state of the wounded and dead is in natural contravention with the jurors in World Courts and the Geneva Convention. A common ploy used in terror zones throughout the world 20th/21st century where one nation is subject to guerilla warfare tactics as any means to an end. Where the oppressed versus the oppressor or vice versa the establishment of a nation-state subject to confrontation.
