there are the dreams Huckleberry never thought about telling I know

Zoe Strauss was given a camera for her birthday about 8 or 9 years ago.

She takes photos of scenes and landscapes that we tend to ignore or overlook but, once syphoned through her eye, are hard to dispel.

She's the bastard child of the Williams: Eggleston and T. Vollman.

Zoe is currently in AK and has an installation in downtown Anchorage this Friday.
From her blog:

Hello Alaskan Friends.

I will be making 200 free portraits in Anchorage this week. This Friday, February 6th, from 5:30PM to 7:30PM, anyone can come to the International Gallery and get their portrait taken in front of a beautiful Alaskan mountain backdrop. I will print a 4"x6" photo for the sitter, which will be available beginning Sunday Feb 8th. Just come back to the gallery at your convenience and take your photo off the wall. The International Gallery of Contemporary Art is open Tuesday-Sunday, noon to 4PM.

Portraits are also available by appointment. Contact me at info (at) zoestrauss (dot) com if you're into getting your portrait made but can't make it over on Friday.

If you live in Philly, keep an eye out for her final 2 installations of
"Under I-95."

Many thanks to an anonymous commenter for bringing this installation to my attention. See you there?
