For a decade, Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss showed her photographic works once a year in a public space beneath an I-95 highway overpass in South Philadelphia. Through portraits and documents of houses and signage, Strauss took a hard look at the economic struggles and lives of residents in her own community and other parts of the United States.  Strauss, a self-taught photographer and political activist, will discuss her work as a type of social intervention.
