LaToya Ruby Frazier – visual historian

This VHC intern is inspired by the highly personal and intensely political visual history that is LaToya Ruby Frazier’s work. She works mainly with her own family history and the history of her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, “…to build visual archives that address industrialism, rustbelt revitalization, environmental justice, healthcare inequity, family and communal history” (from her Biography).

Frazier is a photographer, performance artist, and videographer; her first book, The Notion of Family (Aperture 2014), received the International Center for Photography Infinity Award this year. Specific and personal, magnetic and inspiring, this work is not to be missed, take a look!
