It is the two blue buckets of the title, though, that keep calling me back, their ordinariness so deeply observed, it becomes somehow elevated. It is this kind of deep looking that makes Peter Fraser’s images so compelling.

Synopsis

According to the introduction by Gerry Badger, Peter Fraser has always been aware of a scientific imperative underpinning his imagery science and scientific philosophy inform his work fundamentally. The photographs in this series, which primarily take ordinary domestic objects as their subjects, are considered excellent in formal and technical respects, especially with regard to the handling of colour. But that is not the point instead, Fraser is asking Why? The series was first published in 1988. Revisiting these images 30 years later puts new emphasis on Frasers body of work and its development over the years. Includes a conversation with Fraser and David Campany.
