One of the most important photographic books of this decade, LaToya Ruby Frazier’s The Notion of Family (first published in 2014) is the result of documenting herself – and her family – for over a decade, from 2001 to 2014. Many works were made in collaboration with her mother, inviting Ruby Frazier to view her too as an artist, whilst also making herself the subject of many of her own works. Growing up in an industrial toxic landscape next door to a factory in Braddock, Pennsylvania, The Notion of Family also looks inwood, examining and interrogating environmental racism, healthcare and bigger issues of class in America. Inspired by the late Gordon Parks, The Notion of Family is also a body of work that challenges how Black people are represented and dehumanized in the media.
