Photographing year after year the same person is very difficult. You start missing the provocation of the new and unusual. Asnin did not fall prey to this. Remarkable and intimate portraits by Marc Asnin.
Decades before photojournalists were embedded with soldiers in Afghanistan, Feinstein was recording his experience serving as a soldier in the Korean War. Included in the book are also his iconic photographs from Coney Island. Simple black and white record of this time when photography's primary purpose was to document, not to comment. Just a pure pleasure of the well caught moment.
The book is an incredible and silent gallery of portraits. The photographer's work is so perfect that he almost does not exist in his work. We stay in front of his portraits in the company of his subjects as old friends or strangers who get to know each other.
