From Aline Smithson’s story for Lenscratch:
Photographer Brian Finke has just released his fourth monograph, U.S. Marshals, published by powerHouse Books. Brian spent over four years photographing Marshals capturing the culture, practices and procedures of the United States’ oldest law enforcement agency. His access was unprecedented and his cinematic capture, compelling.
Brian graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1998 with a BFA in photography. Since that time, he has had incredible success as an artist, with work placed in nine museum collections here and abroad. The author of 2-4-6-8: American Cheerleaders and Football Players (Umbrage, 2003), Flight Attendants (powerHouse, 2008), and Construction (DECODE, 2012), his first monograph was named one of the best photography books of 2004 by “American Photo.”
