"Paul Graham is one of the most brilliant photographers of his generation. During the course of his nearly 40-year career, he has presented an extremely focused body of work, at once perfectly coherent and never monotonous. In images both sensitive and subtly political, he makes tangible the insignificant traces of ″the spirit of the times″ we do not normally see."
- From the Hasselblad Foundation’s citation regarding the decision to award the 2012 prize to Paul Graham 

An exhibition "Paul Graham – 2012 Hasselblad Award Winner" will open on October 26, 2012 at the Hasselblad Center at the Gothenburg Museum of Art, Sweden

Paul Graham is one of my favorites.
"a shimmer of possibilities" is in my wish list of books I would like to have and read.
