Richard Fraser observes architecture with a keen eye and has put this skilled observation to work for a variety of commercial clients within the field of architecture by documenting buildings and spaces.
Beyond this commercial focus of his highly evocative and beautiful images of the built environment, Fraser also spends time on walks and journeys in the landscape to document the land and countryside. It is in the places at which the almost disregarded hand of human activity manifests itself where Fraserâ€™s images take on an eerie and beautiful quality.
He has enjoyed success in achieving national recognition in the Landscape Photographer of the Year awards and, more recently, in the Cambridge Photographer of the Year award â€˜Your Viewâ€™ and â€˜Monochromeâ€™ categories. He has been featured in a variety of well-regarded photography magazines. For the exhibition â€˜Situationâ€™, Fraser presents a series of images that show us his ongoing research and observations of the â€˜transectâ€™, a model of urban and rural planning which illustrates the changing zones between nature and man or the natural to built environment. It is within these zones and at their overlaps where Fraser shows us the overlooked or uncanny details that evoke this model.
