ANNE REED GALLERY artist, Harold Feinstein, accepts the prestigious PDN (Photo District News magazine) award for Best Photo Book 2013 this week in NYC. We want to take this opportunity both congratulate Feinstein and acknowledge his incredible presence in the photography world for the last 60+ years.
Harold Feinstein: A Retrospective (Nazerali Press), is the first career-spanning monograph of Feinstein’s work and was funded by the public using a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign was endorsed by The New York Times, NPR, and American Photo and it exceeded its goals in just 30 days! It is an honor to be chosen by PDN’s panel of notable art directors, photographers, and editors for this award. In addition, the book received the Photo-Eye Best Book of 2012.
Feinstein, a member of the socially conscience Photo League group, was a distinct presence in what is often referred to as the “New York School of Photography.” From historic NYC’s store fronts, to Coney Island’s smiling teenagers, to the Korean War’s troops – you are bound to recognize at least one of his iconic black and white images. His work has been featured in the Jewish Museum, the Muse d’Art Moderne in Paris, and the George Eastman House, among others, and 55 of his floral prints are installed in a performing arts center at Stanford University.
We feel grateful to be included in Feinstein’s gallery representation. Currently, ANNE REED GALLERY is exhibiting selected images from Feinstein’s Coney Island portfolio which can be viewed here: Coney Island. We welcome any questions you may have about any of Feinstein’s work.
