Photographing US Marshals for 4 years

Wired Raw has a great article up about photographer Brian Finke‘s 4 years embedded with US Marshals documenting their training and work. It is a terrific collection. Here is an example of his work:

Law enforcement and special forces services have fascinated me since I was young (something else I am thankful to my late father for) and an opportunity to spend so much time documenting their training and work must have been incredible. You can find out more about the US Marshals Service here.

Finke’s work is being released as a book:

U.S. Marshals, the much-anticipated fourth monograph from American photographer, Brian Finke, will be released this November on powerHouse Books. Shot over the course of 4 years, with Marshals, Finke captures the culture, practices and procedures of the United States’ oldest law enforcement agency, heightened by access that is both unprecedented and telling. Finke began documenting U.S. Marshals in 2010 after re-connecting with a childhood friend, Deputy U.S. Marshal, Cameron Welch.
