About the Artist:

David R. Fraser (“Oz”) describes himself as, “a bit of old English.” He was born and raised in England, attending Exeter and Oxford Universities. As a teenager, he developed a love of travel and in interest in photography. He had careers as a church pastor and as an international business consultant. Through these busy years, his interest in photography waned, but the travel continued.

Eventually, he moved from his native England to the USA, setting up home in Pearland, Texas. In 2014, retired and newly married, he attended an art exhibition in Houston where he was fascinated by the “Little Planets” photography of Syd Moen and began to explore its possibilities for himself.

All of the images in Scene by Oz are made using what David likes to call “spherical photography.” For each of his projects, or “panos” as he calls them (from panorama), the camera is set on a tripod and angled in different directions, taking (usually) 25 shots of everything around and above and below, covering the entire 360 by 180 degree sphere of its environment. These images are then stitched together using panoramic processing software, from which a variety of image forms can be taken.
