MONOCHROME SNAPSHOT

David Hill Gallery Presents Harold Feinstein

25th Mar 2020

‘Harold Feinstein’s photographs of crowded beaches and the summertime city are as joyful as monochrome can be.’ –World of Interiors

Presenting one of the most talented American photographers of his time, Carrie Scott & David Hill Gallery are proud to showcase Boardwalks, Beaches & Boulevards by Harold Feinstein. The exhibition features some of the photographer’s most incredible monochrome works, some of which are unseen to the public, and uses the subject as the main theme throughout.

As Scott and Hill note, ‘in nearly every image, Feinstein’s proximity to his subject is clear. It is this physical closeness, an extension of Feinstein’s profound connection to his subjects, that sets his work apart from the other street photographers from the same period.’ Intimacy and compassion sit at the core of each one of Feinstein’s images, whether that be a group of teenagers lying on Coney Island beach or capturing the immutable gaze of a young child, and so Feinstein became known for celebrating humanity with his subjects. 

Portraying the raw and untouched essence that monochrome photography evokes, Feinstein’s fascination and desire to connect with the world around him and share these experiences with others is an obvious aim through every single one of his compositions. 

As Feinstein notes himself, ‘everywhere people live out their own personal story, yet are tied together through the universal emotions of love, loss, curiosity, humour and compassion… my street photography is a small sampling of my photographic journey bearing witness to the beauty and mystery to this human life.’ 

An exhibition not to miss as Feinstein’s talent and works are increasing acknowledged within the arts world and the photographer is finally beginning to achieve the public and critical acclaim that he deserves, David Hill Gallery have put together an exhibition of his works unlike ever seen before. Definitely worth a visit.

Opened in 2015, David Hill Gallery has since become known for exhibiting both established and lesser-known photographers, and with a specific dedication to showcasing work which has been preciously unshown. Their stunning gallery space on Ladbroke Grove ceases to disappoint with every exhibition on display.
