David Levinthal & Donald Rosenfeld
Fine art photographer David Levinthal visited South Florida in mid-February to attend an opening at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale that featured his early words. The collection was donated to the museum by collector and movie producer, Donald Rosenfeld. NSU director and chief curator, Bonnie Clearwater, chose specific pieces of those offered by Rosenfeld to curate a specific narrative.
In the interview, Levinthal spoke on his process of photographing toys and how that process has evolved since the early works that are on display at the museum.
Rosenfeld expanded the conversation with his own observations, and the two spoke about camera technique and the art of focus. Both had opinions on the use of digital photography.
