British-born Paul Graham is recognized for his innovative and experimental contextualization of images and his unique way of assigning meaning to simple aspects in life. His latest work, A Shimmer of Possibility, which will be on view at MoMA from February 4–May 18, 2009 is a selection from a series of photographic works, illustrating the photographer’s particularly tender observation of daily life. Each simple, but structurally inventive series of images, focuses on one subject and each image builds upon the next to create a narrative, which allows us to get a glimpse into unanticipated moments in the lives of each individual.
The dialogue is the first in series of writer Philip Gefter’s conversations exploring contemporary photography among noted artists, critics, curators and editors.
A collection of his essays will be published in April by Aperture as Photography After Frank.
