TAMPA BAY.- This exhibition, organized by the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art through the support of the Finkelstein family, is a 40-year retrospective of photojournalist Mel Finkelstein (1932-1992). During his career, Finkelstein spent more than 20 years with the New York Daily News and later as photo editor for the New York Post. He often would freelance his images of celebrities, politicians and people of public interest to magazines such as Life and Time, and other various publications. His historical photographs, including a Pulitzer Prize-nominated photograph of China joining the United Nations, acknowledge notable events. Mel Finkelstein: Playing a Hunch allows viewers to enjoy these vintage photographs while assessing how images stand the test of time as both historic and artistic expression.
