From an early age, photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier could sense the steel industry’s hold on her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. And she turned to art because of it. In her book, The Notion of Family, Frazier documents life in a steel mill town and the impact of the industry on her community and her family. Collaborating with her mother and grandmother, she uses her family as a lens to view the past, present and future of the town.
