From the CBS News feature regarding the Brooklyn Museum’s current exhibition “Who Shot Sports,” which includes work by Brian Finke:
A new exhibition focuses not just on the athletes and their amazing feats of skill, but on the talented photographers who capture those athletes in motion in defining moments with true artistry. “Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present,” at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City, features approximately 230 images from around the world by more than 170 photographers. The exhibition celebrates the photographers behind many of the most memorable images we have seen in, what the museum calls, the most thorough sports photography exhibition ever. The show runs through January 8, 2017.
Brian Finke’s work is characterized by a hyper-real quality produced with small Q flashes and saturated color. He shot his series on cheerleaders and another on football players between 2001 and 2003.
“Win or lose,’ Finke says, his kids are “emotional.”
