Summary
"In Between the Eyes, David Levi Strauss examines subjects ranging from "Photography and Propaganda" to the ephemeral imagery of dreams; from Sebastiao Salgado's epic social documents to the profoundly personal photographic revelations of Francesca Woodman. In "A Ferocious Philosophy," Walt Whitman, George Eastman, and Paul Virilio sit down to an imagined conversation about democracy and images. The timely issue of photographic "legitimacy" is addressed in "Photography and Belief," and in "The Highest Degree of Illusion," Strauss looks at the media frenzy surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001"--Jacket
