Graham’s Shimmer in NYC

The New York Times just reviewed Paul Graham‘s “a shimmer of possibility”, which opened yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art. Monday night’s An Evening w/ Paul Graham.

“In both the books and the exhibition, you can sense Mr. Graham’s dissatisfaction with traditional photojournalism. His solution is imperfect; it forces the photographer into the role of editor, which doesn’t always work. But it acknowledges that the way we experience photography is changing, through slide shows, vast archives sifted and sorted by tags and key words, and ease of access to video.

In other words, the photographer setting out on the American road must obey the rules of the information superhighway.”
