BARRY Z LEVINE
Levine has been honored as a "Celebrated Artist" of Italy's Biografilm Festival, and his color photographs were on buses and billboards in Rome, Milan, and Bologna and part of a traveling exhibition at Feltrinelli Book Stores throughout Italy. As part of the Academy Award-winning "Woodstock" documentary film team, Still photographer Barry Z Levine captured it all…including iconic shots from a helicopter which portray the size of the enormous crowd. The film, by Warner Bros, won an Academy Award® for "Best Documentary Film" in 1970 and in 1996, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Barry's photos appear in galleries and museums worldwide and have been included in numerous books, periodicals, and exhibitions in New York, Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Rotterdam, Birmingham, England, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Chattanooga, and Stuart, Florida.
In addition to photography, Levine has worked as a writer/producer in advertising and film, video, and theatrical production and was the director of a video production studio in New York City. He has been a long-time independent political activist and is one of the founders of The All-Stars Project, one of the largest and most successful anti-violence programs for urban youth.
