David Leventi captures the grandeur and magnitude of his subjects using a large format camera, a technique requiring a high level of skill. His photographs vary from famous opera houses around the world to international prison buildings - with architecture as a common theme. One feels the absence of presence in Leventi’s images, as they are not populated with human subjects. He presents both the splendor of lovely places and the stories of less-obviously beautiful places - the interiors of airplane hangars, dilapidated playgrounds, and everyday street scenes.
David Leventi holds a BFA in Photography from Washington University, St. Louis, MO. His photographs are shown across the world, including at the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University, San Diego, CA; The Center for Fine Art Photography, Ft. Collins, CO; Photographic Center Northwest, Seattle, WA; Paris Photo, Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, France; and at the Chelsea Museum of Art, New York, NY. Leventi has received many photographic awards, and was a guest lecturer at Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA; Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA; and the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY. His work has been featured in such publications as the New York Times Magazine, TIME, Esquire, Condé Nast Traveler and Vanity Fair.
