Political art alert: Larry Fink at Lehigh


A show of staged photos inspired by pre-war German art is up at Lehigh University until April 12.

Photographer Larry Fink originally made the photos, which rely on Bush administration look-alikes, for a New York Times Magazine spread for Sept. 16, 2001. Then 9/11 came and the photos were dropped. After trying to sell them to a number of publications like The New Yorker and Harper’s, he tried to sell them in Europe. No soap.

The show, called “Larry Fink: The Forbidden Pictures,” looks great on the Web. I can’t wait to get there and look as soon as the weather lets up.
