Best of the Bronx: Photographer Clayton Frazier

Posted:

A Bronx photographer who has traveled the world capturing stories has his work on display at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Clayton Frazier's work ranges from images of the famous Jackson family to work that shows the difference between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, two countries sharing the same Caribbean island.

Despite his travels, he says some of his most memorable photographs were taken right here in New York City.

"One of the most amazing projects in the Bronx is when the Bronx had a lot of gangs," he says. "They would come to my house, and my parents would get upset because they thought they were coming by for other means. I had to tell them it was for photos."

Over the years, he has taken photos for CBS, Warner Bros., Arista Records and the New York District Attorney's Office.

The exhibit runs through Sunday.
