Fifty years after Robert Frank’s seminal book, "The Americans," was released, Zoe Strauss’s own AMERICA breaks new ground. The Philadelphia native who has brought us searing images of that city’s marginalized people and places on the fringe of society, has taken her no-holds-barred, up-close-and-personal style of photography on the road across the underbelly of America.

At times witty, touching, poetic, and downright shocking, Zoe Strauss’s photographs of the beauty and struggle of everyday life resonate as a social document of our time and as sheer and powerful art. Zoe Strauss’s images underscore an America that more often than not goes unseen.

Zoe Strauss had never picked up a camera before her 30th birthday. But in these recent years she has generated a huge body of work that has been recognized and exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, as well as New York’s Bruce Silverstein Gallery, and garnered her a United States Artists grant and a Gund Fellowship. Additionally, Ms. Strauss creates a yearly public exhibit titled "Under I-95" shot beneath Philadelphia’s interstate, that has garnered a devoted following. This is the first monograph of this incredibly talented and prolific photographer.
