From Erica Dye’s piece for ISO Magazine:

Although he refers to himself as a stylized documentary photographer and is accustomed to commercial work, Finke believes that the content of an image should embrace and transcend the intention or function of it. By frequently using flash, his images contain a sense of heightened reality, and along with the saturation of his photographs, his work tends to feel larger than life while simultaneously focusing on the minutiae of the ordinary. Finke’s photographs accentuate the brief brush of a touch, an emotionally charged passing glance. “How I shoot, it’s a lot about capturing the expressions and the gestures that reveal something about the personality of the people that I’m photographing,” Finke said. “I try to focus on the characters and the subtle aspects: how someone holds themselves, their body language, their gestures.”
