We are so used to seeing the American Flag in its colorful splendor, we can forget that images of Old Glory in black and white can be just as powerful. For this fourth of July, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite black and white photos of the American Flag by such respected photographers as Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, Elliott Erwitt and many more. And not the photos you’re used to seeing, either. Enjoy
