It’s not hard to spot the photographs of Brooklyn–based photographer Brian Finke. Bright, crisp, and merged somewhere between traditional documentary and narrative art, Finke captures moments heightened by unprecedented access. His award-winning works 2468: American Cheerleaders and Football Players, Flight Attendants and Construction allowed us to peer inside personal worlds outside of our own; tears on the playing field, life at 30,000 feet and an inside look at the 2010 crash of the construction industry. His 4th monograph—a series that looks at the activities of United States Marshals— is due out on powerHouse Books in the Fall of 2014. Here’s a look back at some of his most striking pictures.
