Arissa and I made a trip to Philadelphia to see a photo exhibit by Zoe Strauss. Zoe lives in Philadelphia. Her photos are primarily of the area in which she lives. They tend to capture life as it is in that section of Philadelphia.
The exhibit was held underneath I-95 at the corner of Front and Miflin Streets. Laminated copies of Zoe’s photos were mounted on the concrete support columns beneath the highway. There were nearly 300 photos. Their true to life quality in an outdoor urban setting added to the overall impact of the exhibit, especially when one reached the far end of the lot and found a few homeless men sleeping along the fence.
Many of Zoe’s photos can be viewed and ordered at www.zoestrauss.com.
