The Beats

"Photographing the stylized gestures of two young men in a park, Fink is already anticipating his later interest in the way bodies in three dimensions relate graphically in the flattened space of the photograph. In the years to come, Fink would continue to deepen his feeling for the expressive content (here, the serio-comic, self-assured posturing of young hipsters) while also strengthening the visual impact of the full photographic frame, in particular by learning how to avoid dead space and activating the corners of the picture." -Laurie Dahlberg, "Larry Fink"

One of Larry's earliest and until recently unpublished series about the Beatniks can be seen at the Armory Show in New York City this August 3rd. They will be shown by James Fuentes Gallery.

See the following links:

This series was Visura magazines main focus last month and a good starting point for the blog, as it was one of Larry's first serious and extensive photography projects.

From the Studio to You

Hello Everyone!

Old dogs sometimes can learn new tricks. Larry Fink, that bastion of the photography world is being re-born on the web.
This blog has been created in order to provide information about what Larry is currently working on. It will also bring to light images, many previously unseen, that have been pulled from his archives. These images, dating back to the 1950's, are intended to provide new perspectives on the history of the country and photography, and the place of Larry's work within that history.
