LOOK! My fashion story featuring the Prattville Lions are in this SUMMER/FALL 2012 DARK+STORMY print issue of HERO magazine. They wanted something American, classic, & very special. Through research we found the Prattville Lions, a championship winning football team in the deep south. It was such a pleasure to photograph these charming kids and they look fantastic!!

Now that the Giants have once again triumphed over the Patriots, check out the exclusive football feature from Nowness written by Chris Wallace:
Focusing on frat parties, future stars, college football teams and high school cheerleaders, Levitt’s portraits take us beyond the glitzy façade to the dramatic personal narratives woven into the game. Renowned for the thought-provoking documentation of youth culture and outsiders collected in her 2008 monograph We Are Experienced, as well as work for The New York Times Magazine, AnOther, Arena Homme+ and Time, Levitt found football, with all its tribal rivalry and statistical arcana, an alluring milieu. “I’m passionate about people who are passionate, and it is a full time job to be even a high school football player,” she says. “Football is primary in these kids’ lives, before even the ladies.”
