Paul Graham's a shimmer of possibility is regarded as one of the defining photography books of the 21st century. On the occassion of the 10th anniversary of the book's original publication MACK have re-published the complete collection of Grahams award winning work.
Comprised of 12 individual books, each volume is a photographic short story of everyday life in today's America. Modest sequences of images, such as a man smoking a cigarette while waiting for a bus in Las Vegas, or a woman collecting her mail from a mailbox in leafy New England, reflect the poetic ebb and flow of life. Graham's photographs avoid the forceful summation often found in photography, shunning a tidy packaging of the world into perfect images, to speak instead about the unexamined depths of quotidian life.
