LaToya Ruby Frazier

Born 1982, Braddock, Pennsylvania. Lives and works between New Brunswick, New Jersey, and New York.

LaToya Ruby Frazier's work explores the psychological connections of intergenerational relationships within her family through photographs and videos that blur the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. Shot in her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Frazier?s images capture the after-effects of a retired industrial town's dramatic decline. Though her focus is self-specific, her work examines the general role that family dynamics play both on a personal level and in society at large.

Her work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions, the New Museum of New York Triennal in 2009, Greater New York at PS1 MoMA  in 2010, the Venice Biennale, and the Incheon Women Artists' Biennale in 2011. Latoya Ruby Frazier will take part in the Whitney Biennial 2012.
