Stunning photography of the King of Cool.
Award-winning photographer Barry Feinstein is remembered for his compelling images of the entertainment industry’s greatest stars. As Dave Brolan writes in his introduction to this stunning volume, Barry was a ‘brilliant documentary photographer with the eye of a fine artist. He would work almost unnoticed and be at the centre of the action for the vital moment.’
Feinstein was a close personal friend of Steve McQueen and the two shared a similar laid-back approach to life, an innate cool and a passion for fast cars and motorcycles. Feinstein’s pictures of McQueen, taken between 1960-68, have all remained completely unseen until now. They are reproduced for the first time in magnificent quality in this volume. McQueen is pictured at the racetrack, on the set of his iconic film Bullitt and also relaxing in his downtime. Feinstein’s friendship with McQueen infused his photos with an intimacy rarely experienced in shots of the star. Stunning photography. Not to be missed.
