Franki Raffles (1955-94) was a feminist social documentary photographer. She was based in Edinburgh but travelled widely, photographing women at work and in their everyday lives, in Scotland, and across the world. Her tragic early death, at the age of just 39, came at a time when she was establishing a reputation as a campaigning feminist photographer with her innovative work on the first Zero Tolerance campaign.
Screen Academy Scotland Interim Director Alistair Scott is currently engaged in a research project to bring her photographs to the attention of a wider public.
