Even though Michael Levin was born land-locked under a vast Prairie sky in Winnipeg, Canada, it was not until he moved out to Vancouver that he became engaged with the potential for landscape photography. Perhaps it was simply his need to better understand his new surroundings – water, water, everywhere – that provoked his deeper interest in the way landscape can shape photographic reality. Whatever the reason, Levin’s creative imagination opened up at the same time as he began to explore the many hidden treasures of the Pacific Northwest – even those more plainly in sight. Since this time, Levin has begun to range more widely, both geographically and in his subject matter, but his curiosity remains for visuals that are obvious and yet elusive, as clear and transforming as water.
