Description

Harold Feinstein was heralded by The New York Times as “one of the most accomplished recorders of the American experience,” but his decision to focus on teaching threatened to relegate him to obscurity. Thanks to this uplifting documentary, Feinstein’s extraordinary photographs have been masterfully brought to life for a new generation. As a teenager, Feinstein’s photographs of his hometown of Coney Island were exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art. He went on to photograph everyone from the jazz greats to his fellow Korean War draftees. The photographs collected for this film mark Feinstein as one of the greatest chroniclers of post-war New York.
