David Levy Art

DAVID LEVY (USA, B. 1962)

David Levy was born in Landstuhl, Germany, in 1962. At the age of 10, his father took him to The Studio, which was owned by a family friend and accomplished photographer, Harvey Mendelson. This was the start of his life-long passion for photography. While studying communications and art history at college, he met Jerry Burchfield and Mark Chamberlain, the owners of BC Space Gallery, in Laguna Beach, California. As a lab assistant, working side by side with Jerry in the darkroom, he began to refine his technical skills, with color and black & white printing. Considered a master printer, utilizing traditional and alternative processes and the demanding Ilfochrome process, David quickly built a reputation, which has led to collaborations with numerous artists, around the world, to produce exhibition-quality prints. Influenced by classic and contemporary photographers, filmmakers and artists, his conceptual photography reflects an integral connection between environmentalism, social/political activism and mass media influence on social behavior. His recent work deals with issues of racism, perception of place in society and the influence of mass media on lifestyle. Levy’s work has been exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe and is held by numerous private and corporate collections. Commercially, he produces creative and editorial imagery for lifestyle, portraits, travel and product use. He has also produced and curated numerous exhibitions, including works by William Eggelston, Mark Chamberlain, Jerry Burchfield, Glen Perotto, Jose Vasquez, Nils Olav Boe and many other notable photographic artists. He has also served as the country manager for Getty Images, in Denmark and has curated a number of commercial exhibitions for Getty, as part of the “Copenhagen Photo Festival.”
