January 23 – March 6, 2015

In Sea Change, celebrated Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss traces the landscape of post-climate change America. In photographs, vinyl prints, and projected images, Strauss treads the extended aftermath of three ecological disasters: Hurricane Katrina in the Mississippi Gulf Coast (2005); the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in Southern Louisiana (2010); and Hurricane Sandy in Toms River, NJ and Staten Island, NY (2012). Lush and leveled landscapes; graffiti pleas and words of encouragement—Strauss’ camera captures lives decimated and dusting off: the fast and slow tragedies of global warming, the damage we can repair, and the damage we can’t.

Zoe Strauss: Sea Change is made possible with the support of the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and the Mellon Creative Residencies Program, Haverford College.
