Working as a professional photographer for nearly six decades, Larry Fink (b. 1941, American) achieved recognition for his blackand-white contrasting depictions of the elite and the working-class. Leaving a lasting impression on the photographic community, his first monograph Social Graces (1984) traversed vastly different social worlds of New York’s highclass society and his working-class neighbors in Martins Creek, Pennsylvania. In addition to being published in the monograph, the work Elegant Group and Statue, Washington, D.C. (1975) comprises the portfolio titled Social Context (1991) of Fink’s early and subsequent depictions of New York City’s rich and famous.
