David Graham - Almost Paradise

 Benson, Arizona, 2002

David Graham was born in 1952 in Abington, Pennsylvania.  He received a BA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and his MFA in Photography from the Tyler School of Art. He has taught at Moore College of Art and is currently on the faculty at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Graham has published several books of his work including Taking Liberties, Ay, Cuba!, Alone Together, as well as American Beauty and Land of the Free, which were published by Aperture, and most recently Almost Paradise  published by Pond Press.  His work has appeared in The New York Times, Harper’s, The New Yorker, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.  His work has been collected by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Biblioteque Nationale in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Tirelessly traveling the United States, Graham captures the colorful, sometimes surreal, and often bizarre, in the thoroughly American landscape. You can visit his personal website here.
