Description


Beginning as a designer, Peter Fink (1907, Grand Rapids - 1984, New York City) traveled the globe from the 1950s to 1970s, moving in hidden streets and industrial towns of postwar Japan, France, Portugal, northern Africa, and the Middle East, photographing workers and street scenes. Arts and culture are recurring themes, as well as the life of workers, families or children in each new place he observed, but also expressive portraits and fashion, surreal still-lives, or his radical Refractions - reflections on architecture. In his lifetime Peter Fink was included in fifty solo shows in institutions throughout the world. His work is held in prominent museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main.

About the Author


American photographer Peter Fink (1907-1984) started his career as a designer with the Chicago firm V'Soske. During his years as a designer, Fink quietly worked on photographic commissions of interior settings and portraits. He traveled from the 1950s to the 1970s throughout postwar Japan, France, Portugal, the Americas, and North Africa, photographing workers and people on the street. His first one-person show was held in Portland, Oregon in 1950. During his lifetime, Fink was honored with over fifty solo exhibitions hosted by more than sixty institutions in cities across the United States, in Jerusalem, Havana, Paris, and London. His work is held in prominent museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
