From Virginia Della Sala’s article for La Repubblica on Brian Finke:
The photographer Brian Finke has toured America to document the world of cheerleaders and football players in high school, university, and the the professional world. The result is a series of photographs titled, “Portfolio 2-4-6-8,” documenting and confirming the customs and traditions which fill American films. . . For his other projects, Finke has documented many professions and social classes, including the employees of construction companies, flight attendants, up to the world of the circus. His next job will take the title of “U.S. Marshals” and investigate from a photographic point of view the universe of American law enforcement.
