ediesittingNat Finkelstein was one of the most respected photojournalists of modern times.  His work in Sixties New York captured the cultural and politcal shakers of the time from Edie Sedgewick to The Black Panthers. Head to London’s Idea Generation Gallery now for an exhibition of his photographs.

Renowned for his iconic and intimate documentation of Andy Warhol’s infamous Factory, and later his political activism including an allegiance with The Black Panthers that forced him to live abroad for 15 years, Finkelstein remained at the heart of the cultural zeitgeist up until his death aged 76, 2 October 2009.

Nat Finkelstein: From One Extreme to the Other runs from 20 January to 14 February at the Idea Generation Gallery showcasing pictures of Bob Dylan, Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, Allen Ginsberg, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp and others.
