    Of all of David Levinthal's series of photographs, none is more challenging and provocative than his "Blackface" series, created over the previous three years. In his blow-up images of miniature toys he has recreated scenes of racism, genocide, and sexual fantasies. This series explores the Blackface myth embodied in "black memorabilia," household objects infused with African-American stereotypes. These images make the Blackface myth speak to us directly, without an intermediary, and demand a response from us regardless of our race, age, or gender. Levinthal's "Blackface" images present a paradox, one that pits the beauty of photographic representation against the racism underscored by these ignoble objects. Magnified with a 20 x 24 inch Polaroid camera, the "Blackface" pictures explore viewer subjectivity and question the manufacture and popularity of "black memorabilia," particularly the recent resurgence of their collectibility among African Americans. The photographs are accompanied by an in-depth essay by noted writer, critic, and filmmaker Manthia Diawara, an expert on the representation of African Americans in film, photography and popular media. This book promises to make a significant contribution to contemporary African-American studies.

    David Leventhal is a photographer who plays with toys, especially figurines, i.e., soldiers, dolls, cowboys & Indians, etc., putting them into frames of reference via photographing them, in order to question the very nature of representation. In making images that draw from our (largely television) culture of pictures, objects, myths, & symbols, Leventhal's postmodern aesthetic contests so much of what is seen. Includes works from the series Hitler Moves East, The Wild West, American Beauties, Dewsire, Modern Romance, Blackface, Desire, and Mein Kampf. Artist's biography, selected bibliography. Color illus. 216.

    Since publishing his first major work in 1977 ('Hitler Moves East: A Graphic Chronicle, 1941-43), American-born photographer David Leventhal has worked with Barbie, blackface memorabilia, toy soldiers, and various modeling figures in exploration of the icons & stereotypesof popular culture. Here, echoing the paintings of Edward Hopper and film noir, these photographs of tableaux set-ups depict scenes of 1940s & 1950s modern life - in dreamy neon-lit color & television blues shining on figures, lingering on street corners, entering movie theatres, murky bedrooms filled with an aura of sexual liaison and isolation. Notes. 138p.

    David Levinthal takes as his subject a remarkable series of 1950s playsets manufactured by master toymakers Louis Marx and T. Cohn. As a reflection of the obsessive play of the 1950s and the current nostalgia for such items, his tabletop photography allows a bird's-eye view of imaginary tableaux - Legionnaire Captain Gallant in the desert, Fort Apache and the Wild West, boy scouts camping in the woods, and travelers making a stop at a roadside Howard Johnson's. These inspired 'micro-worlds in a box' vignettes are like stills from a movie of American popular culture's collective unconscious. Biography. Color illustrations throughout. 160p.
