Yesterday's post and comments reflect how utterly depressing news and numbers can truly be- particularly considering subject matter and history fraught with negative "occurrences." Today we depart the world of the reoccurring, that world of predictably negative consequences- and celebrate the near subatomic world of success from the bowels of today's impoverished landscape. A rarefied world occupied by the very rarest of occupants- the successful, black, female photographer/artist. And one who made her success using and documenting her family and community, and the complex social, political and economic forces that shaped and influenced them.
I mention this now as welcomed relief having just received notice that she will be lecturing here on the Left Coast at CA College of the Arts at 1111 Eighth St, SF on Tues 4/10, 7pm.
Good on you, LaToya Ruby Frazier!
