FPA Presents an Auction of Work by Philly Native, Zoe Strauss

Strauss_Blue-and-Red-Motel

Here at FPA, we are obsessed with telling stories that are inspired by real life. Award-winning photographer and Philly native, Zoe Strauss, has dedicated her life’s work to doing just that — and that’s why we love her!

We are excited to announce our online auction of photographic prints by the artist. The auction includes seven small format prints, five large unsigned inkjet prints, and eight large signed inkjet prints. Click here to peruse the auction and enter for your chance to add one or more of these powerful narrative-inspiring images to your own home collection!

About Zoe Strauss: Recently featured in a 10-year retrospective at the International Center of Photography in NYC, Zoe has also received a Seedling Award in Photography from the Leeway Foundation, a Pew Fellowship and a USA Gund Fellowship. She was featured in the Whitney Biennial and in a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in Philadelphia. Strauss describes her own work as “an epic narrative about the beauty and struggle of everyday life.” Through her photos she captures and recounts her own personal story, as well as that of the people and the landscape of Philadelphia.

All proceeds from the auction will go toward supporting First Person Arts. The auction closes February 16th! Don’t wait to check it out!
