The Whiteness of the Whale brings together Paul Graham’s three bodies of American photographs: American Night (2003), a shimmer of possibility (2007) and The Present (2011). These 3 remarkable photographic series reflect upon the social fabric of contemporary America, while trying to find something closer to the experience of being and seeing in the world today.
The luxurious catalogue is printed in wide gamut inks on natural white paper, and coincides with the first solo exhibition at Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco. It includes newly commissioned texts by David Chandler and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa.
$60 – on-site only at Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco
