“Somehow, Caroline Fraser brings you closer to reality than you might have thought possible. The abstract work – and sometimes clear, unedited shots – she conjures makes you both smile and linger between thoughts and emotions, like the flow of ebb.
The physics of sight is complicated. Putting it simply, what we actually experience and perceive is not what we – our brain – actually see and absorbs. It’s in the collaboration between experience, logic, sights and sense that images, ideas and worlds come together. In the end, it all depends on our own brains and minds to create the world around us. In Caroline‘s work, with fractions, focus blurred, palimpsestic layers and paradoxical patterns, you get a glimpse of reality in action. The gap between what is and what you experience reality to be. It’s with great honor to award Caroline Fraser, Better Moments’ Photographer of the Month, April, 2016.” Better Moments

“My work is a means to express the fragility and transience of life; a very personal response to recovery from serious illness in 2004. I work predominantly in wild open places such as the highlands of Scotland, Iceland and around Camber Sands and Dungeness. Using multiple exposure and in-camera movement alongside conventional techniques I express the moods and emotions that I experience in the outside world.” – Caroline Fraser
