Artist's info:
Born in Brooklyn, Nat Finkelstein (1933-2009) studied photography under Alexey Brodovitch, the legendary art director of Harper's Bazaar, and worked as a photojournalist for the Black Star and PIX photo agencies, reporting primarily on the political developments of various subcultures in New York City in the 1960s.
In 1964 Finkelstein entered Andy Warhol's Factory as a photojournalist and remained for three years; Finkelstein's photographs from this period are now regarded as some of the most iconic of the time.
