Solo exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada in 1995 and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2010 brought him to the attention of many, but his dynamic and original work is yet to achieve the recognition it deserves.

Levinsteins fearless and unsentimental black and white images, whether shot in New York City, Coney Island, Haiti, Mexico or India, possess in Metropolitan Museum of Art Curator of Photographs Jeff Rosenheims words, graphic virtuosity - seen in raw, expressive gestures and seemingly monumental bodies - balanced by an unusual compassion for his off-beat subjects. In 1975, at the age of 65, Levinstein received a grant from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation.

His intention, in his own words, was to photograph as wide a spectrum of the American scene as my experience and vision will allow. This long-awaited book fulfils this ambitious goal.
