Larry Fink

American, 1941 -
"[Fink's] mastery of the electronic flash and high contrast printing creates a sensuality in the social and gestural postures of his subjects as well as rich textures unexpected in such documentation. In his prototypical American scenes, Fink reveals moments that are usually left undiscovered with a detachment and self consciousness which differentiates the "new" from the original social photographers."--DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park

"Larry Fink's photos of these men read as fragments of an ongoing narrative, a story told, for all its theatricality, with a tenderness close to rapture." --Village Voice on Larry Fink's "Boxing".
