According to Curator, Anastasia Lepikhova, it was a terrific evening on September 11, 2014 at The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography in Moscow. A festive crowd gathered for the opening of Playground of America, a six decade retrospective of Harold Feinstein’s black and white photography.

The Center consists of 6,500 square feet of space and the show consisted of nearly 100 photographs, a full wall devoted to Harold’s photomontages, including a blow-up of his seminal 1957 article in Modern Photography on the making of montages. One other wall was used to for a huge mural from one of his montages entitled Boys running into surf.

While Harold’s health would not allow him the journey to Moscow, he was delighted to briefly join his new friends at the opening via Skype sharing his gratitude for the exhibit and some of his basic philosophy of photography.

    My goodness Harold,

    The exhibition is simply breathtaking, so beautifully and thoughtfully presented, so honoring of your magnificent gift.

    There’s only one you, my dearest Harold.

    And, how far that one you has journeyed.

    One person truly can change the world.

    Bravo!

    With all my love,
    James
