I would like to become the field.
One summer we lived in a barn.
We slept, and woke
in searing heat, our skins
sticking to each other.
and the sounds of sheep
chewing grass, small tears in the fabric
of things, inch by inch,
until the entire field was covered
by their teeth.

Her work utilizes the constraints of the camera, the frame, and vision to address the ways in which we orient ourselves to mental and physical limitations.

Fraser spoke at the 2017 Northeast Chapter SPE Conference, Is Photography Enough?: Interdisciplinary Approaches Beyond the Still Image.
