Event Details

Paul Graham is credited with bringing about a revolution in British documentary photography. Based firmly in the observable world and never staged, Graham's photographs of everyday people, places, and events challenge the viewer to ponder the human condition, as well as the language of the medium itself. His photographs can be found in public and private collections worldwide, including the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. 

The Arnold Newman Distinguished Visiting Lecture in Photography is generously funded by the Arnold and Augusta Newman Foundation in memory of Arnold Newman, who had a long-standing relatioship with the Corcoran and curator Philip Brookman.
