During a 40-year career, photographer Larry Fink has explored the human condition from myriad angles – and always with a human touch. Among his publications are Somewhere There’s Music (Damiani, 2006), The Forbidden Pictures(powerHouse, 2004), Runway (powerHouse, 2000), Boxing (powerHouse, 1997), and Social Graces (Aperture, 1984).
More recently, he curated Lisette Model and Her Successors, an exhibition opening in September 2007 at New York’s Aperture Gallery and featuring his own work and that of major photographers such as Diane Arbus, Peter Hujar, Bruce Cratsley, Rosalind Solomon, Bruce Weber, Lynn Davis, Leon Levinstein and Raymond Jacobs.
Fink has shown widely, with exhibitions at MoMA (1979) and The Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC (1997). He recently had a show at the Pace MacGill gallery in NYC that focused on the current political climate concentrating on the democratic contest between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. He has received two Guggenheim fellowships and two NEA grants. His commissioned work has appeared in such magazines as The New Yorker, GQ, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times Magazine. He has taught at New York University, Cooper Union, School of Visual Arts, Yale University and Parsons School of Design. Since 1988 he has been a professor of photography at Bard College.
