Reporting from New York and Los Angeles - When the U.S. government needed expert help in evaluating the bonds that caused the 2008 financial crisis, there were only two men it could turn to. Larry Fink, the founder of investment giant BlackRock Inc., and Bill Gross, the founder of Pacific Investment Management Co., are the generally acknowledged kings of the bond universe. Together, the companies they run hold approximately 7.5% of all outstanding bonds. The $1.2 trillion managed by BlackRock and the $1.1 trillion at Pimco dwarf the holdings of the next largest bond players, according to data from Pensions & Investments.

Even the revolution had its lighter moments. For documentary photographer Larry Fink, a committed '60s radical bent on exposing the ills of society through scenes of blunt tragicomedy, that meant less time in the streets and more time with the debutantes. More nights at fancy parties and the disco inferno of Studio 54. There were gallery soirees and backwoods baptisms captured in black-and-white images that revealed a strange empathy beneath the often harsh lights and shadows of Fink's flash.

While vast swaths of events of the financial crisis have been minutely chronicled, particularly the collapse of Lehman Bros., the people and culture have remained largely unanalyzed. The executives at the center of the crisis have been portrayed as supermen or cartoon villains.
