Ian Fraser

Ian was born in Brize Norton but spent many of his early years in Aden and Peru where his father was an engineer. The seeds of Ian’s enthusiasm for architecture, and an appreciation of photography’s role in recording it, were sown during this time.  After returning to England at the age of 11 Ian was educated at St. Paul’s School in London and then, influenced by his father’s passion for photographer, he did his degree at Harrow School of Art. After working as a freelance photographer for many years Ian gradually developed the idea of producing contemporary architectural prints. Having lived in Oxfordfor over 30 years Ian was inspired to make prints of the University buildings which would allow them to be seen in their architecturally correct form and also preserve their fabulous detail. He devised his own technique which gives the images the perspective of an architectural drawing. All the materials used in the prints are archival  – the combination of acid free watercolour paper and archival inks produces prints which are long lasting with fantastic detail and colour saturation.
