New Essays: Solnit & Levi Strauss

I think Rebecca Solnit and David Levi Strauss are among the very best critics of photography writing today. That will come as no surprise if you've read previous posts. I want to call your attention to a recent, short essay by each. Solnit offers a (somewhat fictitious) retrospective on the year 2006 from the vantage point of 2025. You can find her "View from the Future" at The Nation. Levi Strauss has an essay "Magic & Images/ Images & Magic" in The Brooklyn Rail in which he provides some background on his current research regarding why we invest images (especially photographs) with credibility.
