Article.

Marshals_Baltimore_002_Final

Previously featured photographer, Brian Finke, is launching a new body of work that will be published in a portfolio book by powerHouse Books later this year. The monograph will be the fourth for Finke whose previous works include 2-4-6-8: American Cheerleaders and Football Players (Umbrage Editions, 2003), Flight Attendants (powerHouse Books, 2008) and Construction (DECODE Books, 2012).

The series, which documents the activities of the United States Marshals Service, was shot with unprecedented access in cities throughout the U.S. including Houston, the Texas/Mexico border between Brownsville and El Paso, New York City, Utica, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and Camden, New Jersey.

We are excited to see this work when more details are revealed later this year.

Lintroller | Frat Boys Portfolio

“Frat Boys” is one of Finke’s more controversial work. Shot in 2005, the series was originally a commission for a magazine story exploring the ascendancy of frat boy fashion. Chiseled bodies drenched with sweat and beer sprawl a dark, almost unknown bar: The images that Finke came up with were strong and most definitely surprising.

Intense, primal and sensuous, the scandalous series throws a twist on the more commonly accepted image of frat boy culture.

HipHopHoneys_70ParkAve_015_Final

Brian Finke‘s ongoing series “Hip Hop Honeys,” which documents life on-set of hip-hop videos, approached the year mark in January 2014. The idea for the project came to Finke from a photo editor he works with at D la Repubblica, a weekly Italian style magazine. Finke tells PDN via e-mail, “the photo editor had seen a video about the models from the videos and said ‘Brian, this is perfect for you.’” He agreed and spent a few months reaching out to casting directors, producers, photo editors…anyone that had a connection to that world. Finally someone texted him asking if he was free the next day for a shoot in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood at a cigar bar.

“Photographing has allowed me to be in a lot interesting places and situations over the years. With this project it’s been shooting in hotel rooms on Park Avenue, blunts in the room and towels rolled under the door.” One of Finke’s more notable shoots was a Busta Rhyme “twerking” video shot in both Brooklyn, New York, studios and mansions in New Jersey. However Finke prefers to leave the musicians’ information out of the captions so the focus is really on the models. The shoots have included both A- and B-list artists, which have allowed for a variety of shooting situations. “Higher end videos have large productions with stylists, wardrobe, amazing outfits…all the excess. The lesser know artists have small crews. I can pretty much shoot whatever I want on-set.”
