The American photographer Harold Feinstein was in on the fun. He got up-close and personal with his subjects. The images that resulted—people in Times Square, Harlem, and on the crowded beaches of Feinstein’s native Coney Island—are marked by a singular level of intimacy and compassion. Feinstein was only 19 when his work was acquired for the Museum of Modern Art, and he had major shows at both MoMA and the Whitney, but despite this early success his extensive collection of street photography has flown largely under the radar. An exhibition at the newly reopened David Hill Gallery helps change that. —J.V.
