[Introduction from an interview by Gregg Kemp, Jul 14, 2006]

"One of the first thoughts I had while viewing and reading Edward Levinson's new book "Timescapes Japan - A Pinhole Journey", was how much my own photography has been influenced by him. The influence isn't so much in the images themselves as it is in Ed's approach to pinhole photography. Whether it is the influence of Japanese culture or perhaps Ed's personal nature, his approach to his work is thoughtful and meditative. And his photographs of the last several years reflect those qualities of his style. This approach is also apparent in his sparse, but eloquent writing that accompanies the book. This book is a collection of images you will want to return to often."
Gregg Kemp, Jul 14, 2006

"Timescapes Japan, A pinhole Journey, will take all viewers on a journey that will change their lives for ever. The hidden healing power inside the images, will gently open the hearts of all people. Not any words, neither any comments, will be able to express the beauty, the magic touch of love and the soul power of the work realized by Edward Levinson."
- Fran De Frangh (Belgium)
