Larry Fink on Composition and Improvisation
In this installment of The Photography Workshop Series, Larry Fink—well known for his layered pictures in social settings—explores composing photographs and improvising within a scene to create images with both feeling and meaning.
Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches to, teachings on, and insights into photography—offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers at all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Through words and photographs, in this volume Fink reveals insight into his own practice and discusses a wide range of creative issues, from connecting with the subject in front of the lens to shaping a vision that is authentic. Photographer Lisa Kereszi, a student of Larry Fink, provides the introduction.
