Todd Weinstein, born and raised in the Detroit metro area, has been a professional photographer for more than thirty years. Throughout his active and successful commercial career, he has mounted many exhibitions, lectured around the world, published articles, and won several national and international awards and honors.
In 1994 Weinstein was invited by the German government to be an artist-in-residence; that honor has turned into both a critically acclaimed collection called "Darkness into Light: The Re-emergence of Jewish Culture in Germany, and "The Thirty-Six Unknown," a work of healing for people of all nationalities and religious convictions. The Thirty-Six Unknown, was recently published.
Todd is one of photography's most giving people, who freely gives his enthusiasm, expertise, and time to students and other photographers from here and abroad. He has lived and worked in New York City near Gramercy Park for over twenty years. Detroit Focus is grateful for his important contribution to Detroit Focus 2000.
