Ed Feingersh (born 1924) was born in Brooklyn. Like many artists he loved art from a tender age, and when he joined Haaren High School in Manhattan, he majored in art. Later he was enlisted in the German Army and that’s when he took up photography. He bought an inexpensive 35-mm camera and started shooting. After the war, he attended New York University, of course, with the assistance of the G.I. Bill. At the University, he joined the camera club and became an active member. He later enrolled for the Alexey Brodovitch's photography course. During this period he worked as an assistant to Gjon Mili and gained a lot of experience.
