David Levinthal’s photographs are known for their evocations of childhood, but seen through his eyes, toys are more than just playthings. In Small Wonder, Levinthal used seemingly benign 1950s play sets and plastic figurines as the content and backdrop of his photographs, transforming them into worlds that blur fact and fiction, reality and fantasy.
