Harold Feinstein, A Retrospective is the first career-spanning monograph showcasing the brilliance of a small camera master of black-and-white photography. The 80 duotone plates span a half-century of exquisite imagery, with the majority from the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. In addition to his classic Coney Island photographs taken over six decades, this volume includes some of his best-known street photographs, as well as his lesser known, but recently released images from his life as an army draftee during the Korean War and some portraits, nudes, and still-life.

This gorgeously produced linen-bound book is the perfect gift for anyone who seeks art that is both renewing, life-affirming, and visually stimulating. With Feinstein’s appreciative eye, a vital era in the history of photography comes to life through these intimate, engaging, and beautifully composed images.

“If Diane Arbus took photographs of ordinary people to demonstrate how flawed humans can be, Feinstein reveals how hard circumstances can be transcended. There is nothing critical or anxious about his pictures. His subjects are alive, thinking, and feeling human beings. For Feinstein, it does not matter what people do, where they come from, or what they look like. Their faces light up just the same, and their eyes sparkle with excitement. His subject is us — all of us — and our better nature.” - From the Introduction, by Phillip Prodger, Photography Curator, Peabody Essex Museum

We highly recommend visiting us in person to experience our fine photographic tools before deciding which tool best fits your needs. Please note that our inventory is distributed among our three stores, and what you see online may be at any of these locations. Below are a few points that we’d like to make in order to meet your needs for in store pick up.

The location of each item is indicated online. For convenience, you can choose to pick up your item at any of our stores. Once purchased, the item should be ready for pick up within 4 hours at the designated store, although this might vary depending on the store's busyness and time of day. We request that you wait for a notification from us confirming that your order is ready for pick up, to ensure the best service.

If your chosen item is not available at your preferred store, we can transfer it there after purchase. If you want to pick up an item at a different store, select that store for pick up during checkout, or choose a regular shipping method and let us know your preferred pick up store via support@camerawest.com or by responding to your order confirmation email.

We offer a concierge trade-in program for the gear you'd like to upgrade, cross-grade, or simply pass on to a new owner. This enables you to acquire the tools that fit your specific needs. The easiest way to trade is to bring your gear into one of our stores and meet with us in person. However, we also accommodate those who can't visit our stores. Our online process is both personal and simple.

To begin, fill out the form on our Trade // Sell page with the details of the fine photographic equipment or watches you'd like to trade in. One of our team members will then contact you to confirm any details we might need for an accurate estimate. We will provide an estimate that doesn’t only look at the value of your trade in but the whole picture of where you want to go. If the estimate is satisfactory to you, we can provide a shipping label for you to ship your gear to one of our stores for a final inspection and store credit. Finally, we apply that credit towards your new gear!
