Brian Finke is now well-regarded for his photographs concentrating on select groups of people, including high school cheerleaders and football players, male and female bodybuilders, and also flight attendants. In his newest body of work, he focuses upon yet another classification—namely construction workers, who are often imagined in broad and stereotypical terms. However, whereas in his previous series he zeroed in on postures, expressions, and gestures, relaying diversity in uniformity while also detailing the establishment of individual identities in the image of the larger group, in the “Construction” project, Finke much more frequently pulls the camera back, creating much more atmospheric photographs of the whole setting.
