This Year’s Juror
Larry Fink, under the early tutelage of Lisette Model, developed a unique and offbeat style of empathetic reportage. With his distinct visual and political perspective, he has explored the underbelly of human interaction in all its glory and demise. His celebrated body of work ,“Social Graces” was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1979, and explores the dichotomies and intricacies of the social circles amongst high-class Manhattanites and the working class of rural Pennsylvania.
Larry Fink’s work has also been the subject of exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Musee de la Lausanne Photographie in Belgium, and the Musee de l’Elysee in Switzerland and has garnered him two Guggenheim Fellowships in 1976 and 1979. His most noted books include Social Graces, Runway, Somewhere There’s Music, Boxing, and Night at the Met.
In addition to his prolific fine art, commercial, and documentary work, Larry Fink has been an educator of photography for over 40 years and has taught at The New School, Yale, Cooper Union, NYU, and SVA. He is currently a professor of photography at Bard College.
