“Look: the trees exist; the houses we dwell in stand there stalwartly. Only we pass by it all, like a rush of air. And everything conspires to keep quiet about us, half out of shame perhaps, half out of some secret hope.” (Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies)

Larry Fink was an early admirer of Henry Cartier-Bresson’s work. He studied at the New School for Social Research in New York City, where photographer Lisette Model was one of his teachers and encouraged his work. (read more)
