Details: This poster depicts a photo of a sunflower by Harold Feinstein entitled Bliss. It shows a close-up of a yellow flower.
Harold Feinstein began his career in photography in 1946 at the age of fifteen. By the time he was nineteen, Edward Stieichen had purchased his work for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art and exhibited it frequently during his tenure there. In his early career, Feinstein was best known for his black and white documentary style work, and particularly his extensive Coney Island portfolio, which has been shown often throughout his life in galleries, museums and journals. Renowned photography critic and historian A. D. Coleman has said of this work: “Here is New York small-camera photography at its best – humanistic, intimate, engaged, almost intrusive.” He went on to call Feinstein “a true photographer’s photographer.”
