Zoe Strauss: Ten Years

Philadelphia Museum of Art

January 14, 2012-April 22, 2012

“Zoe Strauss: Ten Years is a mid-career retrospective of the acclaimed photographer’s work and the first critical assessment of her ten-year project to exhibit her photographs annually in a space beneath a section of Interstate-95 (I-95) in South Philadelphia. Strauss’s subjects are broad but her primary focus is on working-class experience, including the most disenfranchised people and places. Her photographs offer a poignant, troubling portrait of contemporary America.”

We’ve been proud to feature Zoe’s work previously and to plug her terrific book, America.  You can learn more at her blog.
