In past life, Josh Levine was a Dutch oil painter. In this one, he is a photographic artist, alert to magnificence, exploring NYC and its surroundings, the American West, and beyond.
He is on the hunt for layers of history and texture in both the urban and natural worlds. Josh was born in Brooklyn in the 60s, graduated from Pingry School and Franklin and Marshall College, and has lived and worked in Manhattan and Brooklyn, along with Santa Fe/Madrid, the Pacific Northwest and Vietnam. He is currently based (perched?) on the side of a NJ mountain that overlooks the entire NYC tableau, where man and nature entwine.
"Gorgeous, cinematic, classic, perceptive, mysterious. Gentle yet Bold."
"Exploring the passage of time, history, man's relation with nature. Celebrating love, life, family, friends, pleasure. Glorifying the natural world, and our very sense of vision. Masterfully, creatively printed images that make you say: Wow."
