Quirky Hipster Photography

Levi Mandel Captures Exciting Everyday Images

— August 12, 2011 — Naughty
The beauty of candid photography like that seen in Levi Mandel's portfolio is that it captures truthful moments in life, no matter how odd or quirky they might be. The raw and gritty photography that we have become accustomed to recently (thanks to those with an affinity for analog technology and an appreciation for professional works from the likes of Terry Richardson), really shows life's moments, the ones worth living for.

Born in Seattle and based in Brooklyn, Levi Mandel makes it his mission to shoot everyday life in order to show us how far from mundane it really is. There's constant laughter, strange sightings and an overall element of excitement through the discovery of new things and experiences that we can't help but wait in anticipation for what comes next. Those are the same feelings you will go through when browsing Levi Mandel's portfolio.
