This series promises to provide some classics. This is sure to be one of the best of the bunch.
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.
This series of books could work very well in theory, sitting between 'how to' books and pure monographs, but the success of that concept depends on how well the text illuminates the images. In this case, I would say that Fink's prose does so indistinctly.
