Paul Graham

Paul Graham was among the first photographers to unite contemporary color practice with the "documentary" genre at the beginning of the 1980s. Over the course of the past three decades, Graham’s series of photographs have garnered recognition for their development of an alternative iconography that visualizes the invisible.

Paul Graham (b. 1956, England) lives and works in New York. In 2012, he was awarded the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography, the most prestigious international award for photography. Graham’s work has been the subject of more than eighty solo exhibitions in internationally renowned institutions including the Whitechapel Gallery, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Tate Gallery, London.
