Thursday Evening Guest Speaker, LaToya Ruby Frazier

"The Notion of Family"

Thursday, March 09 - 7:00PM to 8:30PM
Orange Ballroom

In this talk, LaToya Ruby Frazier discusses how she has used photography to fight injustice—poverty, healthcare and gender inequality, environmental contamination, racism, and more—and create a more representative self-portrait. Drawing from her book, “The Notion of Family” as well as from works of art by Gordon Parks with Ralph Ellison, August Sander, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Langston Hughes, she relates her conscious approach to photography, opens up more authentic ways to talk about family, inheritance, and place, and celebrates the inspirational, transformative power of images.
