This review is from: Larry Fink on Composition and Improvisation (The Photography Workshop Series) (Paperback)
A high- production value book in this new series - as is the Alex Webb edition companion volume. Full of amazing images beautifully re-produced. Fink produces some very memorable images - Jean Sabatine's sixtieth birtday, Truck (just a bottle on the side of a truck - but what an example of how to make an image out of 'nothing'), Martins Creek, English Speaking Union, Picnic, The Horvath Family, Blue Horizon, Houston Texas etc etc - and the same sense of style is applied to such a variety of subject matter.

Fink is not a humble human being (I certainly can understand the thrust of the critical review by Omani) and he certainly over-sells' some of his images, seeing too much in them but the best images are worth it and the text is spare, enigmatic, penetrating, profound, mysterious, provoking, illuminating, (yes, occasionally infuriating and irritating) but overall, inspirational. But don't buy this if you are expecting a more conventional 'workshop' book - and some people will hate it ! Unless you are a real fan, this selection is the best introduction to Fink's work - I found his Social Graces collection rather disappointing - and at the price of just over 10 it's a great buy.
