Synopsis

Persuasive and Poetic Writing On Photography and Photographers

In Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography, David Levi Strauss tackles subjects ranging from “Photography and Propaganda” to the imagery of dreams; from Sebastião Salgado’s epic social documents to the deeply personal photographic revelations of Francesca Woodman. The timely issue of photographic legitimacy is addressed in the essay “Photography and Belief,” and in “The Highest Degree of Illusion,” Strauss discusses the media frenzy surrounding the events of September 11th.

These essays have been published in a broad range of magazines, including Aperture, Artforum, and The Nation. David Levi Strauss is a writer whose visual and intellectual sensibilities are both acute and encompassing. His previous publications include Between Dog and Wolf: Essays on Art and Politics and Broken Wings: The Legacy of Landmines (a collaboration with photographer Bobby Neel Adams). The collection of essays in Between the Eyes reveals that Strauss’s thinking on photography is provocative, lively, and relevant.
