This is a post directed especially at our readers from Alaska! It sounded like Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss was about to land on the moon when she went for a residency in Anchorage in the middle of the winter. But, dontcha know, the moon turns out to be a lot like Philadelphia once Zoe wraps her arms around it. An email we just got says she’s giving a talk today at the Anchorage Museum. But the best part, if you ask me, is the gallery news–a Strauss giveaway:

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.
