Ed Feingersh Wall Art

Ed Feingersh (Born 1924 – died 1961), also known as Eddie, Edward or Edwin, was born in Brooklyn. He was the second of three sons of Rae Feingersh and Harry Feingersh, who was a women's fashion designer. Feingersh majored in art at Haaren High School in Manhattan. He took up photography while serving in the Army in Germany, where he bought a low-priced 35-mm camera. He later studied photography at the New School of Social Research under Alexey Brodovitch. After his training, he worked for the Pix Publishing photo agency as a photojournalist. His talent for available light photography under conditions that seemed impossible was well recognized. Throughout the 1950s, he was a prolific photojournalist, and his pictures of Marilyn Monroe are his best known. For the Pix Publishing photo agency, he produced stories for major magazines in addition to covering a squadron's night fighter mission over Greenland and making a portrait series of Albert Schweitzer in New York.

His coverage of the Korean War involved him carrying in addition to his cameras, pack, the gun, and other standard G.I. equipment. He managed to produce imagery with his wide-angle lens that conveyed a first-person, charged perspective. He developed a reputation for putting himself at risk to get the attention-grabbing shot the magazine editors craved; lying right in the path of stunt cars, parachuting with paratroopers, and even had himself tied to the periscope so as to photograph a submarine diving - the work was published in Pageant and Argosy. Feingersh succumbed to poor mental and physical health, and alcoholism. He neglected his work and died in his sleep on 21, June 1961 in the morning.
