Opening Reception:

May 14 2015

In celebration of LaToya Ruby Frazier’s first book, The Notion of Family (Aperture, 2014), and in honor of her recently received Infinity Award for Publication (presented by the International Center of Photography), Aperture Foundation presents a selection of photographs and videos related to the publication and to Frazier’s ongoing work.


With her work in both photography and video, Frazier offers an incisive exploration of the legacy of racism and economic decline in America’s small towns, as embodied by her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. The work also considers the impact of that decline on the community and on her family, creating a statement both personal and truly political: a complicated layering of and intervention in the histories and narratives of the region.
