Editorial Reviews

From 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.

Photography allows us to perceive the world in novel and, at times, revelatory ways.

To me, these are some of the most beautiful landscape/fine art photographs ever seen/captured. They triggered such an emotional response and I was almost in tears while looking at these photographs.

Thank you so much Mr. Levin. Your work is truly inspiring!!!

Prior to discovering a book of his photography at the Strand in NYC, I was totally ignorant of MIchael Levin's work. Not anymore. Zebrato is masterful: The lighting, the landscapes, the compositions, the minimalism are stunning in their own right but what's most impressive to me is the clear emotional connection his work makes with the viewer. its almost like receiving an electrical shock to the soul. Not trying to go zen on you, its just hard to describe the impact of his work. Suffice it to say he'a got a great eye for composition and is a wizard in the darkroom. If you love photography, its simple: buy this.

What a beautifully presented and printed book - it even smells nice. The photos are superb and an inspiration. Some more technical information would not hurt. How do they do it for the money? I would have happily paid 3 or 4 times the price.
