My photographic practice revolves around the use of a fisheye camera. This camera has enabled me to see the world in a whole new perspective. Through the use of the fisheye, I am taking photos of everyday occurrences, my surroundings, and documenting my travels along the so-called path of life and providing the viewer with a new perspective on these surroundings. For the current series I am working on, I am photographing familiar surroundings in order to remember the places I have lived hence the title of "Welcome to my Neighbourhoods".

Fraser Radford holds an Honours BA from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. His work was included in the 2010 Kingston Pride Art show and while studying at Queen's, he was involved with a number of galleries and artist collectives. At the end of 2010, he made the big move to Toronto and is currently an intern and part of the Nuit Blanche committee at the Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts, an artist run centre located in the heart of the West Queen West Gallery District. In his own mind, he believes this is a major step into getting involved and immersed in the Toronto Arts community. Going along with the themes of moving and familiarity, he will be moving back to Brockville at the end of June.
