Paul Graham: The Whiteness of the Whale

Sunday, September 17, 2017, 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM

Paul Graham (born 1956), an internationally renowned British photographer, has been at the forefront of contemporary photography since the 1980s. His work is celebrated for its unique blend of documentary observation and conceptual innovation. This exhibition brings together three of Graham's most groundbreaking bodies of work, made across the United States between 1998 and 2011: "American Night" (1998-2002), "a shimmer of possibility" (2004-2006) and "The Present" (2009-2001). Linked by a common subject matter, the work gathered here examines the state of race and social class in America while using the very nature of sight and the medium of photography as metaphors for inequality, invisibility and the ways photographs inflect our perceptions of the world. Organized by Pier 24 Photography, it features nearly 40 works, ranging from individual large-scale photographs to sequences of over a dozen images.
