Larry Fink is one of the most highly creative, iconoclastic and consummate photographers working today.
A practitioner of the “snapshot aesthetic”, Larry Fink is catalogued with the esteemed ranks of Robert Frank, Diane Arbus and Garry Winogrand. Fink’s images often display the sensitive core of interpersonal-relationships, prevalent despite social posturing, whether mingled among unctuous characters at a high-society benefit or a down-home potluck setting of family. Over the course of his forty-five year career, Fink has touched every arena of photography with his genius. He hits the sweet spot of documentary where art and facts intersect in such a unique and powerful way – text, context, and subtext intertwine and grab the viewer.
This is a VERY rare opportunity to study with a master photographer who can speak and teach equally well about being a fine artist, a documentarian and a commercial photographer. He will be able to guide your career with valuable advice in any direction: how and who to contact editors for editorial work, how to build your own project and publish a book, how to build your career as a fine artist. He has been teaching for forty-one years at some of the finest institutions in the country so you will be able to ask about MFA programs at Yale, NYU, School of Visual Arts, Cooper Union and others. The workshop will include an in-depth portfolio review where Larry will spend time getting to know each persons work, looking through not only a select 20 image portfolio, but also delving into contact sheets, prints and larger edits of your work.
