Product Information

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 ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. 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 beautifully composed images.

“If Diane Arbus took photographs of ordinary people to demonstrate how flawed humans can be, Feinstein reveals how hard circumstances can be transcended. There is nothing critical or anxious about his pictures. His subjects are alive, thinking, and feeling human beings. For Feinstein, it does not matter what people do, where they come from, or what they look like. Their faces light up just the same, and their eyes sparkle with excitement. His subject is us — all of us — and our better nature.” - From the Introduction, by Phillip Prodger, Photography Curator, Peabody Essex Museum
