Mr. Fink's black-and-white pictures are wonderfully absorbing, funny, skewed, ethereally glowing documents of human situations. The photographer is like a spy, always on the move, catching people at their most unguarded. An anxious, bored-looking woman in evening finery sits near a disheveled fat man in a tuxedo sprawled in sleep on a modern sofa; on the other side of the tracks, as it were, a teenager tries to comfort her drunk friend out in the yard on a summer night. Every picture is like a good short story -- here John Cheever, there Raymond Carver. - Ken Johnson, NY Times
