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.
