9780923183332: Builder Levy: Photographer

The photographs in this book invite us to experience real lives as real people live them, while at the same time enjoying the beauty of the photographic medium. Builder Levy's work combines social documentary and street photography with the elements of fine art. - - - In these photographs we come face to face with persevering individuals in inner-city neighborhoods in New York City; in communities in the hills and "hollers" and inside coal mines of Appalachia; on the central Asian steppe of Mongolia; in Cuba; and at street demonstrations in the 1960s and the new millennium. - - - Introduction by Naomi Rosenblum. Essay by Walter Rosenblum. Afterword by William Bartman - - - "Levy has been steadfast in his belief that, in addition to its narrative dimension, a photograph is an object with its own distinctive aesthetic character. His silver prints, which he alone produces, reveal the rich tonalities that are intrinsic to the medium. The photographs in this book are a testament to the fact that these intertwined objectives can produce works of power and beauty." --from the Introduction by Naomi Rosenblum. - - - Builder Levy is not hip or cool or a trendy photo boy-toy of the fashionista art magazines. He is however, a compassionate photojournalist in the grand tradition of Lewis Hine and Dorothea Lange; a humanitarian, largely out of sync with the contemporary concerns of the large banal color photographs so prized by museums. Levy reminds us of the real life, real people, real suffering that the art world ignores, and we also ignore at the peril of the loss of our own humanity. I salute him in his struggle." --Duane Michals
