David Levi Strauss is a writer whose visual and intellectual sensibilities are both acute and expansive. His trenchant writings on photography and photographers have been collected for this volume from a broad range of magazines, including Aperture, Artforum, and the Nation.
In Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography and Politics, 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 11.
David Levi Strauss is a writer and critic in New York. His previous publications include Between Dog and Wolf: Essays on Art & Politics, and The Legacy of Landmines; (a collaboration with photographer Bobby Neel Adams).
