Paul Graham

Paul G. (1956) is part of that generation of photographers born in the 1950’s that have come to prominence in art photography today, whose creatively formative years coincided with the rich flowering of postwar American photography. Whilst later image makers would approach the medium as ‘artists using photography’, this generation, which includes such notables as Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Rineke Djikstra, Thomas Struth and Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, committed themselves to photography at a time when it was not part of the art world. The images of photographers like Robert Adams, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, or Diane Arbus were important influences, most of whose work came from a tumultuous period in the late 1960-70's, a time of questioning the world and our place within it, creating work that was firmly rooted in finding itself through what could be observed, with trusting what you could see with your own eyes.
