Between the Eyes by David Levi Strauss
Book DescriptionAn Aperture's tradition of publishing important and insightful essays we bring you David Levi Strauss's persuasive and poetic writings on photography and photographers. 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. In Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography, Strauss tackles subjects ranging from 'Photography and Propaganda' to the imagery of dreams; from Sebastiao 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. Strauss's previous publications include Between Dog and Wolf: Essays on Art & Politics and 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.

At this transitional moment in the field of photography, how should we consider what is to come for the medium? Can its past and present practitioners help guide us, both as creators and as observers? This book deals with these questions.
John Wood, Hardback (November 2008)» View all books by David Levi Strauss
Historically, purity is not a term that has been applied to the work of John Wood. In photo-historical terms, he is thought of as a renegade who went against pure photography by incorporating every technique he could get his hands on, into his practice, thus ushering in the multi-media of the 1960s that caused a crisis in straight photography.
