The West-Coast based Fotovision invites all who share the love and passion for photography to an exclusive cocktail party and lecture launching photographer Larry Fink’s new Blurb book, A Night at the Met.
Fink’s photography has been described as displaying the sensitive core of interpersonal-relationships, and the playful and visually beautiful photographs in A Night at the Met capture the ritual of the donor party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Larry Fink has been honored with several awards, including two Guggenheim Fellowships and two NEA grants. His work spans across various spectra in the world of photography including documentary, commercial, and art photography, but he is best known for his “snapshot” aesthetic.
A gelatin-silver print of Sarah Vaughan, New York City, November 1988, is available from Aperture.
