Philadelphia-based photographer Zoe Strauss gets to know the people she documents in her open-ended photographic projects. In her work for the 2013 Carnegie International, she took up residence in Homestead, a Pittsburgh area community hit hard by the decline of the steel industry, and operated a portrait photography studio for nearly two months. Strauss discusses her multifaceted artistic practice that focuses on the unseen or forgotten people and places of urban America. Following her talk, join us for a reception celebrating the Homestead residents who sat for portraits and welcomed her to their community.
