Barry Feinstein's photographs are a unique and extraordinary record of many of the most significant personalities of our time. Starting in the late 1950's in Hollywood, Feinstein has photographed such cinema legends as Steve McQueen, Marlene Diertrich, Marlon Brando, John Huston, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Dennis Hopper, Jayne Mansfield, Montgomery Clift and many more. Feinstein's photographs of musical artists are among the most memorable of the genre. His images of Donovan, George Harrison, Janis Joplin, Miles Davis, Ringo Starr, Barbara Streisand, Dexter Gordon, King Curtis and Bob Dylan are classics.

Feinstein's photographs have been published in numerous magazines including Life, Time, Look, GQ, Esquire, Newsweek, and Mojo. His work appears on the covers of many books, album jackets and CD's. His photographs of the Kennedy inauguration, The Academy Awards, Richard Nixon's presidential campaign, the March on Washington and the Selma Alabama Peace March with Martin Luther King are important documents of the twentieth century. Feinstein is also an accomplished designer, film director, cameraman and art director.

This exhibition features a selection of Feinstein's portraits of musicians, including his legendary images as exclusive photographer on two of Bob Dylan's European tours in 1965-1966. Also featured for the first time is Feinstein's compelling photographic essay on Hollywood after the advent of television.

Feinstein currently lives in upstate New York with his wife, the painter Judith Jamison.
