Gary Fraser

Born in Black and White

As a young boy it seemed my life was all black and white…..our TV was black and white, the first movie I saw was black and white, life itself in my childhood appeared black and white.

As I began to see my world through photography, as most, my choice turned to colour, sunsets, wild flowers, waterfalls, photographing with the intent to capture the colour. With the photographs I made, the more I saw the colour and not the photograph…I was looking at the picture….more concerned with the colour than the content or even the meaning of the photograph.

Now don’t get me wrong, our world is full of wonderful, meaningful colour photographs….for me I found myself moving away from colour photography…as I began to create my black and white photographs, I found myself looking into the picture…many times feeling the storm, or understanding the thoughtful look of a man’s face…

Artist Statement

……it is a privilege to take those moments of time into my camera, to hold that instant in a timeless state by making the photograph. It is at those times the bond between human and earth is most strong. It is at those times the mystery offers a glimpse of the answer.
