Zoe Strauss. America: We Love Having You Here

Zoe Strauss. America: We Love Having You Here at Bruce Siliverstein Gallery. "...Strauss’ choice in subject matter reveals much about her life and work as an artist as well. Having gotten her start photographing the same neighborhood in which she lives, Strauss has consistently 'shot what she knows' and has maintained an extremely personable approach to her subjects. From her earliest works on, Strauss has concentrated on the overlooked in America. Whether its overlooked citizens, environments, or the objects therein, Strauss has aimed her lens at those things we cannot or choose not to see. In her latest project, Strauss has taken her camera on the road in an attempt to create an apt portrait of the United States."
