Finke’s Flight Attendants
If you’re interested in documentary photography, and are curious about how it can be extended in a more artistic direction (through close, sustained involvement and project focus) check out Brian Finke. I fall into a category of people who admire his work a great deal; the Spring Break book is phenomenal, the Cheerleading book is great, and this new flight attendant book looks good, too.

He has a show opening at ClampArt in NYC later this month. Wired Magazine has a selection of the flight attendant pictures and a brief Q & A. Some of the comments, as such, are par for the internet course:
“uhh…is this person related to the reporter? these are some rather mundane images. heavy on the strobe, light on the composition.”
