A camera assistant on Orson Welles' memorable adaptation of Franz Kafka's "The Trial" (1962), Fraisse later collaborated with soft-core director Just Jaeckin on "Histoire d'O" (1975) and "Emmanuelle 2" (1976). In the 1980s he moved into the French mainstream, working with Philippe DeBroca ("La Gitane/The Gypsy" 1985) and Edouard Molinaro ("A Gauche en sortant de l'ascenseur/To the Left as You Leave the Elevator" 1988), among others. Fraisse received deserved international acclaim (and a first Oscar nomination) for his limpid, haunting images of Vietnam, and particularly the Mekong river, in Jean-Jacques Annaud's adaptation of Marguerite Duras' "L'Amant/The Lover" (1992).
