Whisper of the Land”  book review in "American Chamber of Commerce in Japan" (ACCJ) Journal July 2015 by Vicki Beyer.  She captures the essence of the book (and me) very nicely.

"Levinson’s book cannot be called an autobiography, but neither is it philosophy per se. For me, reading it provided an interesting, entertaining, and thought provoking respite.
The essay format, each beginning with one of the author’s poems and samples of his insightful photographs, made it possible to seamlessly shift from one theme to another without any grinding of the gears."

About the show: “Mind Games”

I have been using pinhole photography for artistic expression since 1993. The “Mind Games” series began in 2005 and is my first major pinhole work in color.
When I first started using the three-hole “Pinhole Blender” camera it felt like a good tool for creating stories. Usually I search for three scenes or objects that seem to go together. I look for humor, irony, and social statements when combining the three images into one photograph.

The "model" in the photo is Tim Biancalana

April 27th was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD).
http://pinholeday.org/ I am one of the founding members of this worldwide event, which started in 2001 and still help out with PR and support in Japan. Last year, 3462 photographers from 75 countries submitted images to the online web gallery. Unfortunately I won’t be doing my usual WPPD workshop this year, but I was at my gallery exhibition (see above) in the afternoon 4/27.

Jessica-Dittmer

Did you take a photo this year on Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day WPPD?

I didn't do a workshop this year, but enjoyed quietly taking photos in my garden in the early morning on Pinhole Day. I shot black and white film so it will be about a week before its processed and uploaded to the pinhole day web site gallery.
http://pinholeday.org/ A friend and I also made some photos in the garden of the gallery now hosting my exhibition.

***If you are a former workshop student or just a "fan" of Edo Photos, please feel free to submit your Pinhole Day photo under the Group Name - [Edward Levinson- Edo Photos] . It would be really enjoyable to see everyone's photos shared together.

I had a
nine page photo essay titled "Manhattan Mashup" in the well-known Japanese camera magazine "Nippon Camera" August 2013 issue. One of my photos also appeared on the cover. It was an image of a section of a giant poster of Leonard Cohen juxtaposed under the Broadway lights near Times Square. Still available as a "back number". If outside Japan you might be able to find it in a Japanese bookstore or good library. I may post some of the images on the web now that it no longer on the news stands.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those victims of the Japanese Earthquake and Tsumami.
I made a trip to the Tohoku area in early April for a magazine story, shooting landscapes, and also visited four areas that were devastated by the tsunami and earthquake. One year after things are still messy and far from normal. Two black and white pinhole photos from Miyagi-ken Higashi Matsushima are below.

The above photo was taken at the Peace Park Memorial in Hiroshima on the site where the atomic bomb fell. The small statue in the sky is dedicated to the young girl Sadako, who became a symbol for peace. Sadako had leukemia from the radiation and set a goal of making1000 paper cranes believing that would make her better. She died before her wish came true, but making the paper cranes for peace  become a tradition around the world. Japanese school children pay homage to her at the Peace Park.

This movie is a sampler of 26 photos from my award winning book "Timescapes Japan - A Pinhole Journey" published in 2006. Signed and inscribed copies of the book are available by ordering on my book page. Makes a nice present.



I participated in the 2nd Kozuka Art Festival, in the mountains of Kamogawa showing16 black and white pinhole images from the Healing Landscapes series. I did a talk about my photographs and books on August 13 at 2 pm.


Edo is featured in a Sony Japanese website teaching pinhole photography as a summer vacation project. Text in Japanese, but lots of photos and illustrations so take a look.
