Documentary and conceptual art photographer Daniel Levin traveled to the work-shop of Israeli luthier Amnon Weinstein, the founder of the renowned Violins of Hope program, to explore this great man’s life’s mission. In doing so, he uncovered not only beautiful photographic representations of Amnon’s processes of restoration of delicate violins that miraculously survived the Holocaust, but his intimate workshop as well. With Violins and Hope From the Holocaust to Symphony Hall, Levin has brought the workshop out of itself, to be seen by the world for the very first time. Levin’s research led to extraordinary stories that include figures such as Bronislaw Huberman, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Joshua Bell, Shlomo Minz, Arturo Toscanini, Johannes Brahms, and even actors Daniel Craig, and Adrien Brody, each whose lives are inextricably intertwined with Weinstein’s.
