Larry Fink

(Brooklyn, New York, 1941 - )

North America, American

Fink, who has been photographing for over 4 decades, began working for women’s magazines, but in the mid-1970s, his art moved in a more personal direction. Using his photojournalistic skills, he turned his camera on society benefits in New York, “fueled by curiosity and my rage against the privileged class – its abuses, voluptuous folds, and unfulfilled lives. This work resulted in a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1979. After six years of making ‘Black Tie’ photographs, I moved to Martins Creed, Pennsylvania,” where he began photographing his neighbors, people of a very different social class but with their own social rituals and graces.
