My bags are packed and I’m ready to go! If you’re planning to be at Photo London this year, please take in the remarkable Feinstein events taking place concurrently and right next door at Store X and the Curzon DocHouse in Bloomsbury.
Many kudos to both Carrie Scott, curator and art dealer extraordinaire, and filmmaker Andy Dunn, director and producer of Last Stop Coney Island: The Life and Photography of Harold Feinstein for putting together an integrated Feinstein menu for the Photo London audience (and beyond) during this year’s 5th anniversary of this annual international photo event.
I’m delighted with this six page spread published in The Observer last week-end (both print and digital) discussing both the film and the exhibition. It is the third great feature The Guardian has printed about Harold in the past few years, and I couldn’t be more pleased! (See links below for the others)
Details on the exhibition, Found: A Harold Feinstein Exhibition, can be found here. Filmmaker Andy Dunn will be on hand at certain events to meet and greet at the gallery as well. Here is one of my favorite quotes from Carrie about the work.
“…intimacy is the urgency in these images and compassion sits at the core of each composition…Feinstein celebrated humanity with his subjects…Feinstein’s desire to connect with the world around him and share the beauty he saw is evident in every composition. People stare into Feinstein’s lens, eyes sparkling..No one holds back. Life is vivd. And, as a result, a deep empathetic and beautiful humanity runs through each and every image.” Carrie Scott

This short video produced by the folks at Curzon DocHouse shares Andy’s story about the film, which will be screened twice: May 15 and May 19 at 6:30. You can buy your tickets here! After it’s terrific sold out show at DOCNYC in November, and a screening on May 10th at The Toronto Jewish Film Festival, it will be a great homecoming for Andy to have this premier UK screening in front of his “hometown” crowd. So excited to be there to catch this one! Buy your tickets here! Hoping to see you there! If not, stay tuned for other opportunities to see exhibitions and to view the film!
