If you like the work of photographer Zoe Strauss, you've got to see this show.
Like Ruben's Philadelphia friend and influence, photographer Zoe Strauss, he elevates these "UNSEEN" people and places with poetic vision, working to create an endearing meaningful life lesson of what it's like when the human spirit makes the best of what others may consider to be so little. This photographic project captures the beauty and struggle of everyday life which resonates as a social document of our time, and as a sheer and powerful visual art" - Mike Hoeh
The show includes a total portfolio of intriguing images, taken on the streets of Harlem over the last 5 years.
