About Harold Feinstein: A Retrospective
Harold Feinstein, A Retrospective is the first career-spanning monograph showcasing the brilliance of a small camera master of black-and-white photography. The 80 duotone plates span a half century of exquisite imagery, with the majority from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. In addition to his classic Coney Island photographs taken over six decades, this volume includes some of his best known street photographs, as well as his lesser known, but recently released images from his life as an army draftee during the Korean War and some portraits, nudes, and still-life.
This gorgeously produced linen bound book is the perfect gift for anyone who seeks art that is both renewing, life-affirming and visually stimulating. With Feinstein’s appreciative eye, a vital era in the history of photography comes to life through these intimate, engaging and also beautifully composed images.
Harold Feinstein was born in Coney Island in 1931. When he passed away in 2015 the New York Times declared him: “One of the most accomplished recorders of the American experience.”
He then began his photography career in 1946 at age 15. Within four short years, Edward Steichen, an early supporter, had purchased his work for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
