LATOYA RUBY FRAZIER @ Silver Eye Center for Photography


LATOYA RUBY FRAZIER: The Notion of Family
September 21 – November 18, 2017

Opening Reception
Thursday, September 21, 6 – 9 pm

“Frazier’s images explore the painful effects of decades of industrial decline, poverty, and systemic racism in her hometown of Braddock, PA. A working class town situated on the bank of the Monongahela River, Braddock’s economy had been rooted in industry since Andrew Carnegie built the Edgar Thomson Steel Works in 1873. A child of the 80s and 90s, Frazier grew up when most of the steel industry had left the region and the War on Drugs decimated her community. Frazier came to use photography and art as a way to question inequality and reclaim history.”
