Paul Graham at MoMA: Roadside Reflections on Your Land, My Land

Posted By Administration, Friday, February 27, 2009

The latest project from the British photographer Paul Graham, "a shimmer of possibility," is a quietly radical update of the Great American Road Trip.

Mr. 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.

Read the complete review in the New York Times.
