Photojournalist Stephanie Strasburg explores present-day realities in the mill towns that dot the Monongahela and Allegheny River Valleys.
Stephanie Strasburg is a documentary photographer interested in the people, politics, culture, and landscape of the American Rust Belt. Having grown up outside of Philadelphia, she lived several other lives before settling in Pittsburgh and seriously picking up a camera to tell stories. A staff photographer at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, her work has been recognized with numerous national awards and she was named the NPPA Region 3 Photographer of the Year for 2014. Stephanie's clients include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Vox.com, and she has been published internationally in outlets such as Time Lightbox's Year in Silhouettes and Photos of the Week, Wired.com, News Photographer Magazine, and the Boston Globe's The Big Picture. She loves the blue hour at dusk, serendipity, and the art of getting lost.
