Daniel will share his experiences making his book and photographs.
Daniel Levin is a contemporary artist and documentarian. His art includes photography, exhibitions, film, and site-specific installations that primarily address sociological issues. Daniel is a tenured Associate Professor of Photography at Tri-C and is a Temple member.
See renowned Israeli luthier (violin maker) Amnon Weinstein’s workshop come alive in more than 30 large scale photographs by Daniel Levin. The first photographer to document Amnon’s workshop in Tel Aviv, Levin captures a one-of-a-kind collection of violins that survived the Holocaust and the artful process for restoring them. The photographer’s uncanny ability to celebrate both place and process through the beauty of light is nothing short of remarkable.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
Amnon Weinstein, the renowned Israeli luthier (violin maker) had a vision many years ago to restore violins that survived the concentration camps and ghettos of World War II, even when their owners often did not. His “Violins of Hope” project may be one of the most creative, effective, moving, and magnificent approaches to understanding the Holocaust and how one heals from such pain and loss.
Daniel Levin is a contemporary artist and documentarian whose works primarily address sociological issues. His body of work includes photography, films, and site-specific installations. Through hauntingly beautiful photographs and compelling text, “Violins and Hope | From the Holocaust to Symphony Hall” becomes both an artful rendering and a revelation of the ethereal, as he reveals how Amnon fulfills his dream of transforming tragedy into triumph in the most incisive and powerful way imaginable: bringing violins of the Holocaust back to life. Levin is a tenured Associate Professor of Photography at Tri-C and a congregant of The Temple-Tifereth Israel.
Public programs are presented in partnership with Cleveland Israel Arts Connection, Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, and The Temple-Tifereth Israel.
