From Olga Norman’s interview with Brian Finke for Pocko:

Brian Finke is the man to go to if you need to photograph a barbecue—he has obsessively captured meat charring in Korea and all over the US. He is also the guy to send to the more challenging of shoots—his easy charm allowing him to dip in and out of worlds that not many of us have the option to know.

Brian has photographed subcultures of US society such as high school cheerleaders and football players, the world of policing by US Marshals, the men and women of competitive bodybuilding, legalised marijuana growers of Colorado, and the women that work in the Rap and Hip Hop industry. His subject matter of contemporary US life shows a complex myriad diverse social groups existing alongside each other–the established and the alternative–different tribes—all equally fascinating.
