Todd Weinstein is a photographer whose work spans a wide range of genres from documentary and street photography to abstract and commercial work. More than 160 BTK students have participated in his street photography workshops in New York since 2007.
A native of Detroit, Weinstein has been based in New York City since the early 1970s. Weinstein is known for his street photography looking at the effects of the environment on people's lives, particularly in New York, and for his abstract images using Jewish lore to explore universal themes of suffering and redemption. Most recently, Weinstein has been working on a series of abstract images that explore the 55 Biblical Prophets and Jewish lore.
Weinstein’s work has been acquired by twelve major collections, including The Museum of the City of New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and La Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris. Weinstein’s photos have also been published in numerous high-profile magazines, among them Blindspot, Forbes, German Life, Popular Photography, Time, and Life.
