A Feast of Fe­in­stein

Where Paris - - Arts & Attractions -

The streets, build­ings and busi­nesses of Man­hat­tan in the 1960s to the 1980s are re­vealed in the land­mark photographs of the Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­pher Harold Fe­in­stein in an ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled Gra­ciously Yours at the Ga­lerie Thierry Bi­gaignon, which is pre­sent­ing 21 of his photographs. The pho­tog­ra­pher had a knack for cap­tur­ing the beau­ti­ful in ev­ery­day move­ments and ges­tures for in the streets of New York, Fe­in­stein seemed to have seen only beauty, grace and el­e­gance be it in smoke-filled cof­fee shops, store win­dows, sub­way cars, Times Square or the streets of Har­lem. These black and white photographs record for eter­nity the ev­ery­day life of a host of New York­ers. Harold Fe­in­stein used to de­scribe his im­ages as “a small sam­pling of [his] pho­to­graphic jour­ney bear­ing wit­ness of the beauty and mys­tery of this hu­man life.” - P.V.
