Overview

In a recent feature profile, the American fine art magazine Focus declared that “Michael Levin’s captivating images are soulful and evocative; he is truly one of the rising stars in photography.”

Using long exposures, Levin reduces the landscape to elemental shapes. Each image has a simplicity and purity capturing the essence of the landscape. Many of his photographs feature water and clouds and show what has been described as “the smooth skin of light,” yet it is the architectural intrusions into these clean spaces that most engage him.

Exhibitions in Canada and United States are to be confirmed.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ethereal, ghostly images abound in this eye-catching volume filled with the black and white landscape photographs of young, celebrated Canadian photographer Levin. Using long exposures, Levin gives his monochromatic photographs a haunting, hazy quality cut by the solid, heavy lines of buildings, bridges, rock formations and walls. Devoid of people, the images' sense of loneliness reveal a debt to the cinematic work of artists like Antonioni, who emphasized style and stillness over straightforward beauty. Many photographs attest to Levin's fascination with texture and the constant evolution of natural scenery; in "Spring Field, 2006," Levin captures the striations of unsown earth, creating a supple pattern that resembles fabric. Whether captured in Canada, France, Japan or Iceland, this collection coheres in its otherworldly sense of calm; in a spare introduction, writer Barry Dumka explains that, "despite their exacting clarity," the subjects of Levin's photos "are loosened from their quotidian values to serve better his goal." Also clear is this photographer's talent to parse out the beauty and resonance of seemingly utilitarian structures, creating quietly unforgettable images.
