Feinstein was a close personal friend of Steve McQueen and the two shared a similar laid-back approach to life, an innate cool and a passion for fast cars and motorcycles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Book.

The king of cool.

We always suspected Steve McQueen was as cool in his private life as he was on screen, and now there are photographs to prove it. This new book, "Unseen McQueen," features never-before-seen photos of the actor, shot by his friend, the late photographer Barry Feinstein. The images show McQueen at his most casual--relaxing on set, riding his bike and playing Frisbee, as well as pursuing his big passion, motor racing.

PICTURES: The Magic Of Steve McQueen Unveiled In New Photographs By 'Bullitt' Star's Friend Barry Feinstein

The Huffington Post UK | Posted: 22/11/2013 17:44 GMT

I'm not sure whether I'm an actor who races or a racer who acts," said Steve McQueen.

Gifted with an unfailing taste for fashion and an innate sense of stoic style, McQueen is still regarded worldwide as the undisputed King of Cool - the archetypal anti-hero, an international superstar who began life as a juvenile delinquent and trailblazed his way to the top of counterculture iconography without ever breaking his cool.

This November, Reel Art Press will release a stunning photographic volume of unseen Steve McQueen; an amazing collection of unpublished images of the public and private life of a true icon.

Photographer Barry Feinstein was one of McQueen's closest friends, and this archive includes intimate moments of McQueen with family and friends, on and off the set of 'Bullitt' and alongside the racetrack, powerful portrayals in front of the movie camera juxtaposed with quiet moments of paternal affection as his son sleeps, head on his lap.

McQueen is as at ease in his trademark Ivy style as he is whilst wiping engine oil from his hands dressed in his Lotus and Porsche sponsored racing overalls. His passion for fast cars and motorcycles were all part of his daredevil and thrill-seeking persona.

His mantra, "I live for myself and I answer to nobody," personified his uber-cool image. Maintained throughout his life, it remains unchallenged.

A mesmerizing collection.

G. Q., October 11, 2013 - Paul Henderson
It seems almost absurd to think that any photographer could be behind a collection called simply Unseen McQueen. But then, Barry Feinstein was never just an ordinary photographer.
Jocks & Nerds Magazine
This book, lovingly crafted by bespoke publishers Reel Art Press ... will delight all those McQueen fans and completists out there.
