Michael Levin Statement


Artist Statement
While I was born land-locked under a vast Prairie sky in Winnipeg, Canada, it wasn’t until I moved out to Vancouver that I became engaged with the potential for landscape photography. Perhaps it was simply my need to better understand my new surroundings – water, water, everywhere – that provoked my deeper interest in the way landscape can shape photographic reality. Whatever the reason, my creative imagination opened up at this time as I began to explore the many hidden treasures of the Pacific Northwest – even those more plainly in sight. Since this time, I’ve begun to range more widely, both geographically and in my subject matter, my curiosity remains for visuals that are obvious and yet elusive, as clear and transforming as water.


Process Statement
As for the technical aspects of my photography, I prefer to keep it simple. I travel with 2 large format cameras and 2 lenses. All images are captured on B&W film.
