These are some of David Levinthal’s most recent photographs from his Star Wars Series Attack of the Bricks. I had never seen this work before so when I came across it I was quite shocked and interested to see that he had moved from photographing railway model figures to Lego. But then I realised that he photographed Barbie’s which were very popular at the time, and Lego is very popular at the moment. I really enjoy Levinthal’s photographs of models, I can see one and instantly know it is one of his photographs. So many people are doing Lego photographs at the moment, me included, that there is a risk for images to be lost in everything, but to me David’s still leap out as being works by David Levinthal. It is the backgrounds in most of his images, the short depth of field reduces them to blurs of colour, just like in these photographs. Thats how I know they are Levinthal’s work.
