Pier 24 / Interview still

Paul Graham
photographer

British, b. 1956, Stafford, United Kingdom

For much of his oeuvre, Paul Graham has aimed his documentary-style photography at the conditions of the working class in Britain and elsewhere, producing photographs that were critical of politics implemented by former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Inspired by William Eggleston’s itinerant eye, Graham’s collections have taken him to Japan, the U.S., and around Europe, where he has photographed the mundane details that constitute the quotidian in different cultures. For his series, New Europe (1988-93), Graham found subjects in people and objects that evince the tension between the inescapable shadow of history and the triviality of modern day consumption-led culture.

[via Artsy]

His work is found in numerous international collections including Museum of Modern Art, New York, Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Germany, Musee de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium, Guggenheim Museum, New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland, Tate Gallery, London, Det Kongelige Bibliotek, Copenhagen, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Holland, European Parliament, Brussels, Arts Council of Great Britain, London, Museum Communali, Rimini, Italy, National Museum of Photography, Bradford, UK, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and Winnipeg Art Museum, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
