Larry Fink, Joe Lieberman, 2008
Larry Fink has put up a large handful of photographs related to politics on his blog. His introduction presents a very bleak view, but in some photographs there’s a sense of sympathy for the long hours involved. Then there’s this portrait, the stereotypical pose with hand out, mixed with a very particular smile and ghastly eyes.
The recent self-portrait by former congressman Christopher Lee seems to mix the hand-out gesture with masculine proof.
