Trump Plaza Representation is a project best summed up as:

1. Here’s a photograph.

photograph by Zoe Strauss

2. What’s this photo about?

3. Respond in any manner.

(The imperative here is an open invitation for anyone in the world to respond, but I’m the only person who needs to respond.)

(“I” means “Zoe Strauss.”)

(It’s kind of like when Jennifer Coolidge gets popcorn with half butter/ half salt and then waits for a message from herself)

A more detailed description of the TPR project is:

6. I think this photo is about a lot of things and I’m going share the connections and meanings I find through a kind of stream-of-consciousness
concept mapping. I’ll work on this website, produce prints for sale, and ask a lot of questions in hopes that I’ll generate more questions.

7. I’m interested in how everyone else in the world might respond to “Trump Plaza, 1987,” so I’m going to ask a lot of people what they think and I hope some people respond. Everyone is welcome to respond to the photograph and to comment or ask about the responses to Trump Plaza, 1987.

For this minute, here’s a page where you can say or ask anything about Trump Plaza Representation. I think there will be more spots for discourse. If there are, I’ll post them on this site.

8. I’ll see how it all shakes out.


Above all, Trump Plaza Representation is a site for commerce. For selling photographs and for dialog.  It’s all business.

Here’s even more if you’re interested.
