LARRY FINK – “The Vanities” featured in Art in America

Art in America recently published their list of 12 Notable Books of 2011, naming LARRY FINK‘s The Vanities: Hollywood Parties 2000-2009 among them!

In his review, Stephen Maine writes:

While shooting Oscar parties for Vanity Fair, Fink trades his slouchy street clothes, and per this book’s introduction, “dons a tux and moves like a shadow” among the stars, their entourages and anonymous hangers-on. Skewering the unlovely strivers of Tinseltown might seem as hard as throwing rocks at a barn, but there is method to Fink’s mischief: ignored by the players, he captures a nobody’s-eye-view of high-stakes ritual bonding that speaks volumes about the dynamics of status and the fear of exclusion. As the Hollywood of the book’s title denotes an industry, not a location, many of the photos collected here—black-and-white, printed in tritone—were shot in New York, too.

Other notable articles about The Vanities from the past year include The New Yorker’s Photo Booth and The New York Observer. Purchase copies of the book here.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
