Donald Graham

One of a Kind



ISBN: 9783775746915 Category:

Donald Graham, Colin Westerbeck, Casey Woods


Authenticity, honesty, and character: Donald Graham’s portraits are not simply photographic recordings. Looking at them is like looking at human beings themselves, brought forth by the photographer with his virtuoso technique and sensibilities. These brilliant, strongly contrasting black-and-white photos are evidence of attitude, rather than studied gestures. Eyes and faces are not model-like masks; instead, they express the unique nature of those portrayed. Inevitably, viewers find themselves in a dialogue with them. You wonder about the stories behind these faces; though unfamiliar, they are nevertheless an emotional experience. This magnificent volume of pictures is the first extensive publication of Graham’s haunting work. Reproduced in an elaborate triplex process, the printed photographs also possess great brilliance. On paper they seem almost tangible, fully revealing this outstanding oeuvre.
