LaToya Ruby Frazier: Self Portrait (March 10 am)

In Self-Portrait (March 10 a.m.) I continued to document my lupus attacks. Any time I am having a lupus attack and feel up to making a portrait, I document the moment. On this occasion I had just returned from clearing out my grandmother’s apartment in Braddock after her death. I only kept a few articles of her clothing. In this portrait I am wearing her pajama pants, and a bed sheet is duct-taped to the bedroom wall.
