The latest project from the British photographer Paul
Graham, "a shimmer of possibility," is a quietly radical update of the
Great American Road Trip.
Graham, born in 1956, grew up looking at Robert Frank, William
Eggleston and the photographers of the New Topographics movement. Yet
"shimmer" rejects the linear, automobile-centric narrative of the 1960s
and '70s in favor of a looser, more open-ended structure, one that Mr.
Graham has aptly called "filmic haiku." It is a form that owes more to
Chekhov's short stories than to Kerouac's novels.
