Paul Graham, Photographer

Mr. Graham received a B.S. from Bristol University, U.K. He was the first photographer to combine the sensibility of contemporary color photography with classic British social documentary. Publications include a dedicated Phaidon monograph and, most recently, a twelve-volume set of books: A Shimmer of Possibility (2004-7). His work has been exhibited extensively, including a one-person show at the Tate Gallery, London (1996), and he participated in the Italian Pavilion of the 49th Venice Biennale (2001) and the inaugural exhibition at Switzerland’s Fotomuseum Winterthur. He was one of only two British photographers included in the Tate Gallery’s landmark Cruel and Tender survey exhibition of twentieth-century photography (2003). His work is found in many public collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Tate Gallery, and Fotomuseum Winterthur. Mr. Graham resided in the U.K. for most of his life and moved in 2002 to New York City, where he is now a permanent resident. He was appointed critic in photography at Yale in 2003.
