Let's Get Lost free pdf For more than three decades, artist David Levinthal has examined the popular culture and social mores reflected in toys and miniatures. He pierces the mythology of tradition and identity, playing on collective notions of nostalgia. In a series of work praised as being the most indicative of his style, Levinthal presents images of hand-painted baseball figurines photographed with the oversized 20x24 polaroid camera. Using both antique and recently manufactured figurines, he re-creates some of the most legendary moments of baseball's history.
