Honoring Harold Feinstein

Harold Feinstein began his photographic career in 1946, and by the age of 20 his work had already been purchased by Edward Steichen for inclusion in the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. A member of the famous Photo League, he rubbed elbows with the likes of Weegee, Winogrand and W. Eugene Smith, but when he declined inclusion in Steichen’s now iconic Family of Man exhibition, he was soon left behind and forgotten by the art world and contemporary photography collectors. To that end his Boston gallerist began a Kickstarter campaign to raise $35,000 in order to print the first monograph of Feinstein’s work. The goal has been easily reached, so the book will definitely be created, but check out the page to find great information about Mr. Feinstein and his work, as well as links to the photographer himself and those involved with finally creating a monograph for this undisputed modern master.
