Frazier, as her work clearly attests, is the exact opposite of New York's reigning mood of arty-go-lightly. An artist on a mission with a prophetic voice, her unblinking realism—rendered in lurid black and white—will surely frighten away fence-sitters and sensation-seekers. That's as it should be. Her photographs blaze with moral courage; there'd really be no point in making them if someone didn't get burned.
