Brian Finke's work is a visual culture commentary with a graphic sensibility and uniquely American point of context. A stylized documentarian and trained photojournalist, Finke’s work strikes at the core of contemporary life, capturing an honest and intimate range of human behaviors while finding the humor in the everyday.
A graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Finke received a BFA in photography. He is the author of several books, and his first monograph, 2, 4, 6, 8, was named one of the best photography books by American Photo. Earlier in his career, Finke was an International Center for Photography annual Infinity Award finalist and won a prestigious New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship. His work is in nine museum collections in the US and abroad, and he regularly shoots for editorial and commercial clients, including National Geographic, The New Yorker, New York Times.
Finke teaches photography at Parsons in Manhattan and Red Hook Labs in Brooklyn.
