LaToya Ruby Frazier
Growing up just outside of Pittsburgh in Braddock, Pa, that former steel town in seemingly perpetual decline, served to form and inform Frazier's photography. A 2015 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship recipient, Frazier's work is unerringly clear and powerful in its representation of both people and place. Namely, her family and Braddock. As a photographer myself, but not of this caliber, I can attest to the difficulty in mastering clarity in meaning.
Frazier is young, just 33 years old, and I look forward to seeing where she takes her vision next.
