Going Digital

Polaroid ceased production of the instant film for its 20x24 camera in 2008, which signaled the end of an era for Levinthal. Spurred by the impending disappearance of his primary material, as well as new creative aspirations, Levinthal decided to go digital. At the time, he was working on a series about the war in Iraq and needed a medium that would more closely reflect the media coverage of the conflict. In contrast to the cumbersome 20x24 camera, digital equipment allows Levinthal to capture more detail and many different angles, and print his images on a much larger scale, as evident in the History series.
