Dates:  1931 - 2015, 20 June
Born:  US, NY, Coney Island
Active:  US
Website:  www.haroldfeinstein.com/
 
  
American photographer highly regarded for his detailed color images of flowers and foliage taken from 2000 onwards. His earlier black and white work taken between 1946 and 2000, including the work published in LIFE magazine, is now receiving more attention and two books are in development. One of these books will be on his Coney Island series and the other is on that most subtle of emotions - love.
 
He also did the design layouts for one of the most important documentary projects of all time - The Pittsburgh Project of W. Eugene Smith.
