Black and white photography can capture a texture and sensitivity that, at times, evokes a feeling of visual hyper-realism. A recently opened exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, “London Street Photography” conveys this sense of grittiness, charm and authenticity. According to a Karen Rosenberg’s review in the New York Times, “Arriving from the Museum of London, which presented it in 2010 and owns the more than 150 works on view…a glimpse of an older, more eccentric city. It covers the Victorian era to the present, and is particularly rich in images from the mid-20th century: the golden age of street photography in England, as in the United States.”
A smaller companion exhibition, “City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography,” provides an opportunity to compare and contrast two very different modern cities as they grappled with war, the postindustrial era and various forms of social tension.
ARTprojectA is proud and honored to offer the ART of Harold Feinstein, now an octogenarian, he is recognized as a master of street photography. His street photography captures with undeniable candor a single human moment. It’s personal yet universal. The images will remain classic and timeless.
“London Street Photography” and “City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography” continue through Dec. 2 at the Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue, at 103rd Street; (212) 534-1672, mcny.org.
