In much of David Levinthal's work, including the series Mein Kampf , the artist uses a large-format Polaroid camera with Polacolor ER Land Film, which allows him to alter the sense of scale in his images and make toy figures appear lifelike. He tells us,
 
"Working, as I have for over 30 years, with toy figures and models, you often will discover new ideas as the work progresses. The instant viewing that Polaroid provides is a critical part of this process Being able to work so quickly also enhances the sense of discovery."
