Zoe Strauss is a photographer based in Philadelphia. She has a down to Earth approach. She has documented many woman living with abusive partners
She exhibited her show ‘10 Years’ (photographs taken from 2001-2010) on pillars below Interstate 95. She sold photocopies of her photos for $5.
Her work is in colour and she vividly captures the seedier side of life in her photos. I admire how she gains the trust of her subjects in order to let her get close enough to them to photograph them naturally in their own environments.
