At the tender age of 18, Larry Fink found himself captivated by the artists, writers and musicians of the late-stage Beat movement, which counted Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs among its charismatic figureheads. In New York City, as well as on road trips across the USA and all the way to Mexico, the young photographer documented the hedonistic and eccentric lifestyle of this rebellious subculture.
Later he turned his attention to the glamour of Hollywood: for ten years, Fink attended Vanity Fair’s Oscar parties – photographing the famous, the wealthy and the beautiful, the rising and the waning stars, as they were dancing, drinking and mingling with their fellow VIPs. The resulting images – shot entirely in black and white – are defined by a compelling blend of sensuality and searing honesty.
In early 2021, the Bene Taschen Gallery in Cologne dedicates a comprehensive retrospective to the photographer’s work. The showcase – which features excerpts from famous series such as ‘The Vanities’, ‘Social Graces’, ‘The Beats’, ‘Somewhere There‘s Music’ and ‘Boxing Images’ continues until April 24, 2021.
