Biography

Michael Levin was born in Winnipeg Manitoba in 1967. It was when he moved to Vancouver that he became engaged with the potential for landscape photography. He is the recipient of numerous awards including Nature Photographer of the Year at the 2006 International Photography Awards in New York City, as well as, Fine Art Photographer of the Year at the PX3 (Prix de la Photographie) awards in Paris, France in both 2007 and 2009. His work has been featured in Black & White Photography Magazine (2005 & 2008), Focus Fine Art (2006), Shots Magazine (2009), Silvershotz Magazine (2009), and B&W Magazine (2009 & 2010). Levin is represented by galleries in North America and Europe. His debut monograph Zebrato (2005) is in its third printing.

Referencing his latest series of colour photographs, Levin states “I’ve been spending time over the last two years primarily in France, Germany and Japan trying to find my way with colour. It’s like a slow romance, a courtship. I want the colours in these images to suggest the muted palette that I admire in 19th century landscape painting. But I’m a modernist and also like when colour bristles with energy. These photographs are about the possibility of colour – how it can be both old and new again.”
