This picture shows the gated community in which Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave his infamous “47% speech.”
It’s a detail from a picture was taken by Magnum Photos member Zoe Strauss, who is traveling through Florida this month with fellow Magnum-ites Alec Soth and Alessandra Sanguinetti. They’re posting some of their work here on Tumblr, at Postcards From America. If you’re not following it, you should! (Here’s another of Strauss’s photos.)
On the occasion of Strauss’s mid-career survey at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, she was the lead guest on Episode No. 10 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. Strauss’s appearance will make you laugh and cry — and you’ll understand why she and her camera see the things she’s seeing in Florida.
