Larry Fink is best known for his work exploring social classes in the United States. Using unconventional perspectives he aims to capture intimate views of his subjects in the bright drama of his flash. “People like to have their pictures taken. Some will endure the pain of flash-blindness because recorded experience is somehow more important to them than actual experience.”
