Harold Feinstein: April 17, 1931 – June 20, 2015

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the death of Harold Feinstein in his home on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at the age of 84. His loving wife, Judith Thompson, was with him at his passing.

Harold took great delight in the new audiences attracted to his work in recent years through an award-winning book, several prominent exhibitions and work on two documentaries about his life.

He lived every day with gratitude for life and brought great joy to those who knew him personally and through the appreciation of his art. There will never be another one like him, and he will be sorely missed.

A fuller remembrance of Harold’s life and work will follow soon, along with some ways people can celebrate his life.

I had only recently found Mr. Feinstein’s site and blog even though I knew of his work for many years. My best wishes to his family.

I work for a dermatologist and we have his artwork in our waiting room and our patients love to look at and take pictures of them, they are beautiful and bring a lot of joy to all. Best regards to his wife and family.

My thoughts and sympathy are with Harold’s family and friends. He inspired me in my photography in
so many ways and I still love and cherish his books.
