Peter Fraser is a British artist who has been at the forefront of contemporary photography since the early 1980s. After a landmark exhibition with William Eggleston in 1984, he became one of the first British photographers to work exclusively in colour and over the last thirty years he has built up an influential and important body of work. Fraser (b.1953) graduated in photography from Manchester Polytechnic. In 2002 the Photographers' Gallery, London, staged a twenty-year survey of Fraser's work, and in 2004 he was shortlisted for the Citibiank Photography Prize. 2012 saw his first retrospective exhibition at Tate St.Ives, along with a fully illustrated monograph on his work.
