February 5, 2008: A tribute DVD to digital imaging pioneer, Bruce Fraser, is now available a year after his death from a rare lung cancer.
Prepared with the support of Adobe Systems, Inc., Apple, Inc., Epson America, Inc., Hewlett Packard Company, Microsoft Corporation, Peachpit Press, and X-Rite, Incorporated it records the event at Macworld 2007 when the stars of imaging acknowledged Fraser’s contribution en masse. The event, An Industry Celebration and Tribute to Bruce Fraser was a lively and engaging recollection of how digital imaging and desktop colour has evolved over more than 20 years to become the everyday phenomenon it is.
Hosted by Bruce’s friend and fellow musician and artist, Graham Nash, the Tribute was filled with striking still visuals, video clips and told by the geeks and non-geeks who knew Bruce along the way, (including famed landscape photographer and digital pioneer Stephen Johnson; Bill Atkinson, an Apple Fellow and now a photographer himself; and Adobe Photoshop engineers and friends, Thomas Knoll and Mark Hamburg). An Industry Celebration and Tribute to Bruce Fraser gave attendees a vivid, inside look at how one dedicated and focused person of extraordinary humility could shape an industry, from billion dollar manufacturers to home-based photo enthusiasts.
The DVD culminates with a moving gesture of gratitude from Bruce’s wife, Angela. It is available at no charge (shipping and handling fees apply) via www.brucefrasertribute.com.
