Keith Levit

Keith Levit first picked up a second hand camera twenty-five years ago. The ensuing years have seen Keith creatively pursue his concept of merging photography and art, in both the black and white and colour mediums. Although based in Winnipeg, many of Keith's images have been created during his extensive travels throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North & South America. His passion for photography, love of travel and adventure, coupled with his sensitive, profound, honest affection for people, embody images that capture the heart and soul of the world's most remote and inaccessible regions and the people who inhabit them. Keith transcends the medium of travel-photojournalism capturing the mystical beauty, harmony and hardships of the inhabitants of these lands.

"Making photographs is as essential a part of my being as breathing or eating. It is one of the necessary functions of living. My constant desire to make photographs is actually the urge within me to capture a moment of time of my world, just as I open my eyes to give substance to my sight.

Photography must first and foremost be loved; it must come from the heart and it must be directed to the heart. Otherwise it cannot hope to be a lasting, indestructible art.
