Jerry Saltz on Frazier: http://www.vulture.com/2018/02/latoya-ruby-frazier-is-a-goya-of-black-america.html


Frazier takes an earnest, activist approach to photography, bearing witness to the American catastrophe of inequality. She fills the multi-floor gallery with three bodies of work, including “The Notion of Family,” made between 2001 and 2014, which earned her a MacArthur Fellowship. It’s an extended meditation on racism and poverty in the deindustrialized steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, where she grew up. Frazier’s approach to Flint, Michigan, in a series from 2016-17, is similar: the intimate images, which echo the iconic, Depression-era photographs of Dorothea Lange, document three generations coping with the water crisis. A mother brushes her daughter’s teeth with bottled water; students awaiting President Obama’s visit hold protest signs. On the gallery’s fourth floor, the artist exhibits photographs of Noah Purifoy’s outdoor sculpture museum in Joshua Tree, California. Her elegant treatment of the otherworldly, found-material monuments reveals another aspect of her singular documentary sensibility.

sent from one of Safelight’s active members: “Obama’s photographer……It’s too bad that Trump does not embrace his photographer and provide greater access. cell phone imagery (versus photographs from a professional photographer) coming out of this admistration does not do our history justice.”
