A Classic Look At Class in the Late 1970s; Now with new photographs, a new design and new separations, here comes the fabulous reprint of Larry Fink's famed first collection! Fuelled by curiosity and rage against the privileged class, Larry Fink looked to the decadent black tie events of New York's jet set for subject matter. From 1974-1980 he attended various balls, gallery openings and famed night-spots like Studio 54, surreptitiously capturing the seemingly empty lifestyle of the well-to-do. During this time, he moved to a farm in Martin's Creek, Pennsylvania, where he got to know the Sabatines, a fantastical clan of down-home country folk, whom he photographed as well, documenting their parties and rituals with the same insider perspective. The contrast of class, both in economic ranking and cultural polish, is what makes Social Graces a ceaselessly current expose of people at play.
