Essays on the Present and Future of Photography

Published by Aperture.
By David Levi Strauss.

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 Present and Future of Photography. In the course of 25 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. Published in the Aperture Ideas series, Words Not Spent Today is an incisive exploration of photography’s changing role as a tool of evidence and conscience as we move forward into--can we say it?--a post-photographic era.
David Levi Strauss is the author of From Head to Hand: Art and the Manual (2010); Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography and Politics, with an introduction by John Berger (2003); and Between Dog and Wolf: Essays on Art and Politics (1999, updated in 2010 with a prolegomenon by Hakim Bey). Strauss was a Guggenheim fellow in 2003 and received the Infinity Award for Writing from the International Center of Photography in 2007. He is chair of the graduate program in art criticism and writing at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Between the Eyes: Essays on Photography and PoliticsBetween the Eyes: Essays on Photography and Politics

Published by Aperture.
By David Levi Strauss. Introduction by John Berger.

In an era of social confusion and visual pandemonium, David Levi Strauss tackles issues of photography and politics in a way that few critics today are courageous enough to attempt. The essays collected in Between the Eyes address topics ranging from propaganda and the imagery of dreams, to Sebastião Salgado’s epic social documents and the deeply personal photographic revelations of Francesca Woodman. Other issues broached here include the legitimacy of photographic imagery and the media frenzy surrounding the events of September 11, as well as essays on the work of Ania Bien, Miguel Rio Branco, Alfredo Jaar, Joel-Peter Witkin and others, plus an interview with painter Leon Golub (who worked from photographs). Reviewing the first edition of Between the Eyes, Publisher’s Weekly wrote: “‘Photography and Propaganda,’ a study of the work and deaths in ‘80s Central America of photojournalists Richard Cross and John Hoagland, should be required reading in the age of embeddedness, and ‘Photography and Belief’ is a terrific meditation on truth in the age of digital manipulation.”

Published by MoMA PS1.
Introduction by Phong Bui, Glenn Lowry. Text by David Levi Strauss.

With just a handheld 35 mm camera and natural lighting, Robert Bergman explores his subjects with an evident determination to record a connection, even at the expense of surroundings, which Bergman tends to carefully forfeit as a compositional element. The series documented in this paperback edition of Selected Portraits charts the evolving character of Americans at the turn of the millennium.

Sally Mann: The Flesh and The SpiritSally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit

Published by Aperture/Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Text by John Ravenal, David Levi Strauss, Anne Wilkes Tucker.

Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit is the first in-depth exploration of this world-renowned artist's approach to the body. Throughout her career, Mann has fearlessly pushed her exploration of the human form, tackling often difficult subject matter and making unapologetically sensual images that are simultaneously bold and lyrical. This beautifully produced publication includes Mann's earliest platinum prints from the late 1970s, Polaroid still lifes, early color work of her children, haunting landscape images, recent self-portraits and nude studies of her husband. These series document Mann's interest in the body as principal subject, with the associated issues of vulnerability and mortality lending an elegiac note to her images. In bringing them together, author and curator John Ravenal examines the varied ways in which Mann's experimental approach, including ambrotypes and gelatin-silver prints made from collodian wet-plate negatives, moves her subjects from the corporeal to the ethereal. Ravenal also supplies a comprehensive introduction as well as individual entries on each series, and essays by David Levi Strauss ("Eros, Psyche, and the Mendacity of Photography") and Anne Wilkes Tucker ("Living Memory") add different, but equally illuminating perspectives to this work. Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit is a must for any serious library of photographic literature, students, scholars, collectors and others interested in her work.
Sally Mann (born 1951) is one of America's most renowned photographers. She has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants, and her work is held by major institutions internationally. Mann's many books include What Remains (2003), Deep South (2005), and the Aperture titles At Twelve (1988), Immediate Family (1992), Still Time (1994) and Proud Flesh (2009). She lives in Lexington, Virginia.

Terry Winters: Signal to NoiseTerry Winters: Signal to Noise

Published by Charta/Irish Museum of Modern Art.
Text by Enrique Juncosa, David Levi Strauss, Peter Lamborn Wilson, Francine Prose.

Terry Winters (born 1949) belongs to a generation of artists who have taken painting beyond the constraints of Minimalism; his art seems to arise almost as a byproduct of independent natural or mechanical processes, which leave buzzing arrays of knots, grids, whorls, tangles and weaves in their wake. Following his investigations of the 1980s, which centered on depictions of botanical and biological processes, Winters now explores the more cerebral imagery of information technology in paintings and drawings that invoke networks and systems of modular forms and structures—themes that, in their hermeneutic openness, make his work particularly available for collaboration (Winters has recently worked with Trisha Brown and Rem Koolhaas). This sleekly designed survey of painting and drawing from the past ten years reproduces major series such as Set Diagram (2000), Turbulence Skins (2002), Local Group (2004) and Knotted Graphs (2008).

Introduction by Phong Bui, Glenn Lowry. Text by David Levi Strauss.

With just a handheld 35 mm camera and natural lighting, Robert Bergman explores his subjects with an evident determination to record a connection, even at the expense of surroundings, which Bergman tends to carefully forfeit as a compositional element. The series documented in this catalogue, produced for Bergman's exhibition at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, charts the evolving character of Americans at the turn of the millennium. Of this series, Toni Morrison has written: “Occasionally there arises an event or a moment that one knows immediately will forever mark a place in the history of artistic endeavor. Robert Bergman's portraits represent such a moment, such an event. In all its burnished majesty his gallery refuses us unearned solace and one by one by one each photograph unveils us, asserting a beauty, a kind of rapture, that is as close as can be to a master template of the singularity, the community, the unextinguishable sacredness of the human race.”

Daniel Joseph Martinez: A Life of DisobedienceDaniel Joseph Martinez: A Life of Disobedience

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Hakim Bey, Michael Brenson, David Levi Strauss, Gilbert Vicario.

For more than 30 years, Los Angeles-born artist Daniel Joseph Martinez has been honing his politically-inflected practice, which critic Jeffrey Kastner has characterized as "unapologetically prob[ing] uncomfortable issues of personal and collective identity, seeking out threadbare spots in the fabric of conventional wisdom." A wry provocateur, Martinez incorporates an impressive array of media including text, painting, photography, sculpture, video, performance--even animatronics. Known for the controversial pin he created as an interactive piece for the 1993 Whitney Biennial that read, "I can't imagine ever wanting to be white," this volume, with essays by Michael Brenson, David Levi Strauss, Hakim Bey and Gilbert Vicario, provides an in-depth look at selected works from 1978 through Martinez's 2008 Whitney Biennial entry, "Divine Violence," including his contributions to the San Juan Triennial in 2004, the Cairo Biennial in 2006 and the Moscow Biennial in 2007.

Witness to Her ArtWitness to Her Art

Art and Writings by Adrian Piper, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell and Eau de Cologne

Published by Bard College.
Edited by Rhea Anastas, Michael Brenson. Foreword by Tom Eccles. Text by Adrian Piper, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Monika Sprüth, Rhea Anastas, Michael Brenson, Norton Batkin, Johanna Burton, Aruna D'Souza, Pamela Franks, Janet Kraynak, David Levi Strauss, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Ann Reynolds, Hamza Walker.

This radical new study aims to change the way that some of the most influential artists of the past 40 years are seen--all of them women. Emphasizing questions of autonomy, critical intelligence and artistic intention, Witness to Her Art presents works by Adrian Piper, Mona Hatoum, Cady Noland, Jenny Holzer, Kara Walker, Daniela Rossell and Eau de Cologne, a magazine published by gallerist Monika Sprüth. The artworks are accompanied by original writings by the artists, contemporaneous criticism and newly commissioned essays by Pamela Franks, Aruna D'Souza, Johanna Burton, David Levi Strauss, Hamza Walker and Cuauhtémoc Medina. The ambitious works presented and interpreted herein invite us to consider the impact of the feminist revolution across generations while rendering obsolete any stigma associated with shows or catalogues limited to women artists. Taking its lead from Conceptualism, feminism, and from its included artists, Witness to Her Art reaches for art history's capacity as a medium of world-making.

Cabinet 18: Fictional StatesCabinet 18: Fictional States

Published by Cabinet.
Essays by William Bryk, George Pendle, David Levi Strauss and Michael Taussig.

From the perfectly organized island nation of Sir Thomas More's Utopia to the idealized mountain stronghold of Eldorado visited by the naive hero of Voltaire's Candide, the idea of the fictional state--utopian or dystopian, satirical or idealistic--has a long and distinguished pedigree in literature and philosophy. The issues explored by these classic imaginings--including questions of governmental organization, economic mechanisms, social policy and cultural norms--are just as vital today as in the past, and continue to give rise to new alternative states, nations, and principalities inspired equally by political dissent and artistic fancy. Journeying in this expanded landscape of imaginary municipalities--with its unorthodox histories, ersatz bureaucratic apparatuses, do-it-yourself credentials and fantasy topographies--Cabinet no. 18 features William Bryk on the ephemera of fictional states, George Pendle on the socio-political trajectory of micro-nations, and a conversation between David Levi Strauss and Michael Taussig on state-making and magic, as well as portfolios by invented nations including NSK, Elgaland-Vargaland, Sealand and the Hutt River Province Principality. The unthemed section includes Frances Stark on the charms of ivory; Christopher Turner on Spectro-Chrome Therapy; Samantha Hunt on Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace's “Difference Engine;” and projects by artists including Craig Kalpakjian, Sasha Chavchavadze and Caitlin Masley.

Between the Eyes: Essays On Photography And PoliticsBetween the Eyes: Essays On Photography And Politics

Published by Aperture.
By David Levi Strauss. Edited by Diana C. Stoll. Introduction by John Berger.

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 as diverse as “Photography and Propaganda,” the imagery of dreams, Sebastiao Salgado's epic social documents and 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. As our world is shaped more and more by images and their slipperiness, what he calls a media “pandemonium” in its root meaning of “the place of all howling demons,” we need a mind and voice like Levi Strauss' to bring clarity to our vision.

Cabinet 13: Histories Of The FutureCabinet 13: Histories Of The Future

Published by Cabinet.
Edited by Sina Najafi. Essays by Ben Marcus, Joseph Masco, Dan Rosenberg and David Levi Strauss.

We have been living through boom times for the future. Even during the relative calm before the escalating storms of 2001, our cultures and industries collaborated in a remarkable proliferation of words and images about this impossible entity, the future. In recent years, the very thought “future” has been spectacularized in extraordinary ways. Produced in coordination with Duke University Press's forthcoming book of the same title, this volume explores the ways in which “the future” is a placeholder for fantasies and anxieties very much connected to the present. Dan Rosenberg profiles Theodor Holm Nelson, inventor of hypertext; Joseph Masco investigates the “desert Modernism” of the Nevada Test Site and Liberace's Las Vegas; and “The Japanese Futurist Manifesto,” written in 1928, is published for the first time in English. Also in this issue, Ben Marcus on the color “Khaki,” David Levi Strauss on Leon Golub's photographic archive, a history of paint-by-numbers, a CD compilation of historical political speeches including Woodrow Wilson's address to the American Indian, and more.

Published by Roth Horowitz, LLC.
Edited by Andrew Roth. Essays by Vince Aletti, Richard Benson, May Castleberry, Jeffrey Fraenkel, David Levi Strauss, Daido Moriyama, Shelley Rice and Neville Wakefield.

The history of the photographic book goes back more than a century; early on, the medium of photography and the book format were understood to relate to each other on both technical and aesthetic levels. The examples of truly great combinations of photographic image and text, great design and typography bound together as books are numerous, and make up an impressive artistic, social and documentary statement of the twentieth century. Writer and rare book expert Andrew Roth has selected for this volume a group of 101 of the best photography books ever published: books that bring all of the elements of great bookmaking together to create, ultimately, a thing of beauty, a work of art. Mostly made up of publications in which the photographs were meant to be seen in book form, as opposed to approaching the book as merely a repository of images, this list includes many artists and titles that will be familiar to the collector, but also not a few surprises. Chronologically, the first book is Volume One of Edward Curtis's seminal 1907 The North American Indian, and the last is David LaChapelle's LaChapelle Land from 1996. In between are books by Walker Evans and Berenice Abbott, Atget and Brassai, Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand, and many other seminal photographers from all over the world. Each book in the catalogue receives a double page spread which includes publication information, several image spreads and a short text. But The Book of 101 Books is much more than simply an annotated and illustrated catalogue. Six important new essays on a variety of related topics from respected scholars, critics and artists are included as well: here you will find Richard Benson on the history of printing techniques, Shelley Rice on the societal significance of photography books, May Castleberry on reprints, exhibitions and keeping books alive for the public; Daido Moriyama on his personal memories of making his classic Bye Bye Photography, Dear, Neville Wakefield on the particular attributes of one of the most recent books in this group, Richard Prince's 1995 Adult Comedy Action Drama and Jeffrey Fraenkel on the myriad perils of publishing photography books. The catalogue entries themselves are written by the well known critics Vince Aletti and David Levi Strauss. Taken together, the depth and beauty of these essays and images will make The Book of 101 Books both an essential reference and an aesthetically compelling object.
