“As the zebras stand nuzzled together facing in opposite directions, they have 360 degree vision between them to protect themselves against predators.” ArtNews October 2012 included a reproduction of Zebras Nuzzling with their review of Levy’s recent one-person exhibition, Developing Nations. This silver print is toned with Nelson’s Gold-toner to add a slight warming tonality, intensify and deepen the blacks, and increase archival permanence.
