by Diana Stoll
Publisher's Description
David Levi Strauss’s persuasive and poetic writings on photography and photographers, now available in a new edition. These essays have been published in various magazines including Aperture, ArtForum, and The Nation. In Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography and Politics, Strauss tackles such wide-ranging subjects as “Photography and Propaganda,” the imagery of dreams, Sebastião Salgado’s epic social documents, and the personal photographic revelations of Francesca Woodman. In the essay “Photography and Belief” Strauss addresses the issue of photographic legitimacy and in “The Highest Degree of Illusion” he discusses the media frenzy surrounding the events of September 11. Strauss’s previous publications include Between Dog and Wolf: Essays on Art and Politics and The Legacy of Landmines (a collaboration with photographer Bobby Neel Adams). 'We can learn with him. He knows how to resist, he's a good guide across frontiers, he stays calm . . . Critic as coyote. Listen with him . . . ' —John Berger
