Duncan Fraser

(1947-), Photographer

Artist of 10 portraits
For the most part of his working life Fraser was a teacher in secondary, tertiary and higher education. In the 1980s he worked as a photographer with a special interest in environmental portraiture, exhibiting his pictures of people connected with the arts and resident in the South East of England at that time. He worked as a qualifications developer in arts and media production until retirement, and having completed his English doctorate, was appointed as a Visiting Research Fellow in the Centre for Early Modern and Medieval Studies at Sussex. Here he co-authored with Andrew Hadfield Gentry Life in Georgian Ireland: The Letters of Edmund Spencer (1711-1790) and an edition of James Shirley's play The Politician.
