Between the eyes : essays on photography and politics by David Levi Strauss( Book )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 699 libraries worldwide
"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

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide

Francesca Woodman by Francesca Woodman( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 348 libraries worldwide
In the thirty years since her death, FrancescaWoodmans work has retained an undeniable immediacy and continues to inspire a cult-like following of admirers.Woodman began photographing at the age of thirteen. By the time she enrolled at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975, she was already an accomplished photographer with a remarkably mature and focused approach to her work. At the age of twenty-two, she committed suicide. Woodman might be merely a tragic footnote in the history of photography were it not for the startlingly compelling, complex and artistically resolved body of work she produced during her short career. Her oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular. Her practice assimilated and advanced aspects of feminist theory, Conceptualist practice, and performance art. Thus, a close re-examination of the maturation and reception of Woodmans artistic vision presents an important and timely opportunity to reassess the heady artistic moment during which she came of age. This catalogue, produced by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in conjunction with the first major American exhibition of the artists work in more than two decades, promises to be a landmark reconsideration of Woodman for the twenty-first century. It will paint a fuller picture of her oeuvre than has previously been available, spanning her earliest student experiments to her late, large-scale blueprint studies of caryatid-like figures for the massive Temple Project, and her experiments with fashion photography. The exhibition will bring to light many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published, and the book will focus on these and other vintage prints that theWoodman estate is making available for this exhibition and publication. These rare prints will allow audiences to appreciateWoodmans skill as a printer, and to grasp the importance of the final print to her artistic vision. Through all of these means, Francesca Woodman will examine why her photographs continue to be so profoundly affective many decades after their making
From head to hand : art and the manual by David Levi Strauss( Book )
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
In his third book, Strauss delves into the mysterious process whereby an idea is born in the mind and materialized through the hand in the expression of an artwork. How exactly does this happen? It's a question so basic, an act so fundamental to art-making, that it has rarely received attention. It makes an ideal topic for Strauss, a writer with an exceptional ability to animate art's philosophical dimensions in a clear, persuasive manner. During this time when craft and the direct manipulation of materials by the artist appear to be in eclipse, Strauss comes to their defense in a spirited cri de coeur. Featuring over 35 illustrations, the book examines a wide variety of media and individual examples. It explores the works of sculptors Martin Puryear, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Donald Lipski; painters Leon Golub and Ron Gorchov; and writers Robert Duncan, Robert Kelly, Guy Davenport, John Berger, and Leo Steinberg. In addition, there are essays on Joseph Beuys's 7,000 Oaks in Ireland, contemporary Haida carvers Reg Davidson, and Jim Hart, Cecilia Vicun̋a's "memory of the fingers," and the influence of curators Harald Szeemann and Walter Hopps on the staging of contemporary art exhibitions

Words not spent today buy smaller images tomorrow : essays on the present and future of photography by David Levi Strauss( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 226 libraries worldwide
"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? David Levi Strauss--eminent author, critic, and teacher--rises to the challenge of these questions and more in Words Not Spent Today Buy Smaller Images Tomorrow: Essays on the Past and Future of Photography. In the course of twenty-five essays, some of which appear for the first time in this volume, Strauss discusses the work of artists who provoke us with revealing, clear-eyed investigations of the ostensibly patent world in front of us, and others who transport us to new realms, poetic and unreal--creative minds ranging from Frederick Sommer, Helen Levitt, Daido Moriyama, and Joseph Beuys to contemporary photographers Sally Mann, James Nachtwey, Susan Meiselas, Tim Davis, and many others. Also considered are the groundbreaking theoretical writings of Susan Sontag and Jean-Luc Nancy, the films of Chris Marker and Stan Brakhage, and issues and events that have irrevocably altered the way we consider the medium of photography and how it communicates: 9/11, Abu Ghraib, the death of Osama bin Laden, the Arab Spring, and Occupy Wall Street."--Publisher's description

Barbarous souls by David Levi Strauss( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
"On December 14, 1955, Darrel Parker arrived at his Lincoln, Nebraska, home to find his wife, Nancy, strangled to death. Abandoning other potential leads, the police quickly focused their investigation on the grieving husband. What followed was a tragic miscarriage of justice. Barbarous Souls tells the story of Darrel Parker's wrongful conviction for Nancy's murder and the decades-long struggle to clear his name. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with those involved in the case. Lincoln native David L Strauss weaves a shocking true crime story with an exposT of still prevalent methods of interrogation-methods that can lead to false confessions and the conviction of innocent suspects. To make their case against Parker, the authorities relied on a manipulative interrogation by polygraph operator John Reid of Chicago. Reid's company, John E. Reid & Associates, founded in 1947, today provides interviewing and interrogation techniques that it claims are the most widely used in the world."--Page 4 of cover

6 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 63 libraries worldwide
A partir de una tarjeta postal en 3-D de las Torres Gemelas, titulada Cosmos & Damian, realizada por Joseph Beuys en 1974, David Levi Strauss analiza el profetismo de Beuys y el significado de su "arte de sanar". Veintisiete años antes de que el World Trade Center se convirtiera en el objetivo de un grupo internacional de terroristas fundamentalistas, Beuys veía las torres como símbolo de una fría "zona mortal" dominada por el capital. Beuys bautizó a estas heridas hermanas con el nombre de dos gemelos árabes cristianos, los santos Cosme y Damián, inscribiendo sus nombres en las torres. Rastreando el origen del mito indoeuropeo, David Levi Strauss viaja a través de la historia del arte, llenando con una nueva vida la "magia terapéutica de las imágenes."
