ARTIST STATEMENT:

RMRL: A Vision of Men by John Edward Fink

Once I started photographing men, I knew I wouldn’t want to stop. I knew this gathering body of work would have to be named something. Real Men Real Life (RMRL for short) was what I came up with, and I still think it’s perfect. The subhead I used was “Male Photography by John Edward Fink”, and that’s what’s changed. Now, it’s “Real Men Real Life: A Vision of Men by John Edward Fink”.

Why the change? Well, the word “photography” is part of the issue. Unlike using pencils, paints or sculpture to depict the male form, “photography” suggests that an image can be captured as-is, and without interpretation. But what I’m doing absolutely feels like interpretation. Sometimes this feels more to me like sculpture and archery than “photography”. In any case, I’m trying to create images that find and celebrate the essence of these men, and my perspective or vantage point cannot be separated from this process. I’ve reached a place of confidence that my unique and idiosyncratic perspective does indeed have value.

I have respect, love, and gratitude for the men shown here. And I’m so appreciative for all of you who tune in, and cheer me on. Real Men Real Life is my vision of men, and I’m absolutely going to see that vision through!

Peace!

John
