Opera Houses: Large Scale Photos by David Leventi

Photographer David Leventi captures the awe-inspiring beauty of opera houses around the world using large format (4×5″ and 8×10″) Arca-Swiss cameras.

“Leventi is not just aesthetically inspired by the opera houses he photographs, but also holds a familial connection to their structures. He is the son of two architects, and the project was started in remembrance of his grandfather Anton Gutman, a cantor trained after World War II by a famous Danish operatic tenor. Gutman performed for prisoners and officers while interned at a prisoner-of-war camp in the Soviet Union, and Leventi’s photographs are a gesture that aims to examine the spaces he was never able to perform.”
