Publisher's Description

In the 1970s, Peter Fraser studied photography at the Manchester Polytechnic in England, and began to work in colour early. The first exhibition with his colour photographs dates back to the year 1982. At the same time, other British photographers began photographing in colour, including Martin Parr, Paul Graham, and Peter Mitchell, who, although they were pushing the boundaries of the medium, always followed a documentary approach. Not Peter Fraser’s cup of tea. But it took a two-month visit to William Eggleston in Memphis to give him certainty and the confidence to be a colour photographer and cut his own path.

That’s what he did. From 1983 to 1987 he photographed the series Twelve Day Journey, The Valleys Project, Everyday Icons and Towards an Absolute Zero. They were exhibited and led to the publication of the original version of the book Two Blue Buckets in 1988.

To deal with this work again after 30 years was a great and highly emotional experience for everybody involved. Alan Ward, the designer of the first edition 30 years ago, also took care for the Director´s Cut of Two Blue Buckets in a very thoughtful way. Gerry Badger, who has written frequently about Peter Fraser’s work before, has contributed a new essay and David Campany sat down with Peter Fraser for a conversation that is also included in this magnificent new book.
