From Elliott Woods’ cover story on Brian Finke for Pro Photographer magazine:
From the über-preppy bacchanalia of fraternity and sorority life in America’s deep south, to the fitness cults of Zumba and Spartan Race, to the off-camera lives of hip-hop video models, photographer Brian Finke has made a career of bringing American subcultures into sharp and often disturbingly close focus.
On Friday nights in Spring, Texas, Brian Finke stood on the sidelines with a 35mm camera slung around his neck. He had a hunch that that he was standing in front of a gold mine: straw-haired boys with braces in colourful uniforms, posing like the pros they lionise; girls with big hair, stage makeup, and fake tans, armed with pompoms and blazing white smiles.
