Book Description

Jan. 9 2012 Int'l Center of Photography, New York: Exhibition Catalogue

With little formal training as a photographer or artist, Zoe Strauss (b. 1970) founded the Philadelphia Public Art Project in 1995 with the aim of exhibiting art in nontraditional venues. Five years later, she began using photography as the most direct means of representing her chosen subjects. Zoe Strauss: 10 Years offers a midcareer assessment of Strauss's achievement to date, and the first full account of her celebrated ten-year project, beginning in 2001, to exhibit her photographs under an elevated section of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia.

Strauss's troubling and sometimes touching images focus primarily on American working-class experience, to convey what she calls "an epic narrative that reflects the beauty and struggle of everyday life." Generously illustrated, this book includes nearly 200 photographs—135 of them published here for the first time—along with images that document her I-95 exhibitions. With essays by Peter Barberie and Sally Stein, plus a text by the artist herself, a bibliography, and a chronology, this is the most definitive publication to date about this important young artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Sept. 27 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Back around 2000, I met Zoe through a very dear friend and high school classmate at our 42nd reunion. She took me to South Philadelphia to a photo/video evening by a young and emerging photographer, who posted her photos under I-95. I must say, as an artist and a human being, I was, as they say, blown away by the integrity and compassion shown in Zoe's photographs. I actually came home with two, which I still treasure.
It was with sheer delight that I found this book while browsing through Amazon books.
Fantastic, Zoe, I miss Mary Ann very much, but I am certain she would be very very proud of you, your accomplishments and this very fine book.
PS I have also purchased America, and these books, and the framed photos, share a very prominent place in my living room/art gallery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book April 7 2012
By L. T. Pratt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wonderful book that shows the photographs in the ZOE STRAUSS: 10 YEARS exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A "street photographer" who is now being shown at places like the Whitney, Strauss is a compelling visual storyteller.
