The COVID-19 outbreak has imposed restrictions in movement. As part of an ongoing initiative, photographers of Magnum Photo are sharing information and new work made in these strange and difficult times.
Born in San Francisco in 1970, Granger has worked as a baker, house painter, naval radar operator and camera salesman. He first began to photograph while studying philosophy in college as a way to get out of his head. Preferring to use traditional film cameras, Granger has come to see his photography as a spiritual practice – a way in which to shape his life and enrich his relationship with the world. He likes motorcycles a lot too.
Publications have included B&W Magazine (2003); Emulsion Magazine (2006); West Marin Review (2012); View Camera Magazine (2013) Looking Glass Magazine (2014); Manifest Magazine (2015); and Revue Météque (2015).
Exhibitions have included A Street Gallery, Santa Rosa, CA; CAC Gallery, Santa Rosa, CA; North Light Gallery, Napa, CA; Viewpoint Gallery, Sacramento, CA; and forthcoming Lightbox Gallery, Astoria, OR (March, 2018).
Austin Granger is the author of Elegy from the Edge of a Continent: Photographing Point Reyes.
