I was visiting a friend in Boston last week and had the opportunity to attend a lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier at the Harvard Art Museum. I found her activism through photography to be incredibly inspiring and was just wondering if anyone here also had an interest in photography as a form of activism. Here's one of Frazier's latest projects, called Flint is Family.
Her work is absolutely gorgeous – I wasn't familiar with her beforehand, but I have to say that Flint is Family is a very evocative, sentimental project. I'm really surprised to see that it's hosted through Elle, of all places.
Thanks for sharing. This story is a complete tragedy. The LOVE of money is truly the root of all kinds of evil. Who cares about the financial success of the city if it's full of poisonous water.
I'm out here in Oregon where we have tons of fresh water. Rain and rivers. Craft brewing of beer is a big thing out here, mainly because of the good water and also that we grow lots and lots of hops. I remember a movement not too long ago coming from a bunch of the local craft breweries to collect $$ for the people of Flint. I think the money was used to purchase bottled water for the residents. Hopefully some infrastructure fixes are coming soon. This kind of thing should never happen
