Frank (aka. Frankyboy) initiated the Collateral Eyes Collective in January 2017. Starting in early 2015, Frank organized regular street photography photo walks in Frankfurt/Germany. After his appearance in a podcast episode at streetcast.fm, more and more people joined the group. Very soon, a group of six highly motivated people emerged and Frank decided to bring them all together to forge this amazing collective.

Frank once took a “through the window” shot of a young woman. What he didn’t see is that her boyfriend was sitting right next to her. This guy, twice as tall as Frank and tattooed from top to bottom, ran out of the café and approached Frank. Frank, shivering, said: “Oh man, I’m so sorry, I’ll delete everything!”. The guy answered: “No, why? Don’t delete it! I just wanna know, what you’re doing”.
