Larry Fink secured enduring fame with the book Social Graces, which mixed images from working-class Pennsylvania with a portfolio from upper-crust Manhattan, observing manners and mores on the long, curvy couches of Studio 54 and in the chaos of Pat Sabatine's eighth birthday party, where the screen door is always just about to slam. Fink has always been interested in what high and low culture have to say to one another, and has continued to seek the best of both behind the scenes at fashion shows in Runway and in the ring with sparring fighters in Boxing.

Buchbeschreibung Bologna : Damiani, 2006. Buchzustand: Sehr gut. 145 S. Umschlag leicht berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - The first image reproduced in this collection, that of Jimmy Rushing, was taken when Fink was merely 16 years old. By his early 20s, he had photographed Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Lightning Hopkins, Roswell Rudd, Kenny Dorham, and Steve Lacy. Setting aside for the moment the striking aesthetic qualities of these early pictures, it is worth emphasizing just how unlikely these photographs are, and what this unlikeliness reveals about Fink's background, especially about his personal interests and political sensibilities. After all, in the milieu of its origins and throughout its complex development in the 1950s, jazz was largely the creation of black Americans. The venues in which this music was played and appreciated reflected this fact, and while some whites (in addition to hipsters and the beats) came to be appreciate post big-band jazz and regarded bsbop and hard bop as music of extraordinary genius, few whites in segregated America were sufficiently comfortable with blacks or black culture to enter into their communities, camera in hand, ready to make visual records.
