David Graham is an American artist-photographer. His subject is the American cultural landscape. A tireless traveler and a natural-born storyteller, his work is a jubilant celebration of freedom of expression, seeking out those Americans who are serious about the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
“In Plain Sight”
“In Plain Sight” captures the colorful, sometimes surreal, and often bizarre in the thoroughly American landscape. Graham seeks out subjects that celebrate our singular freedom of expression in colorful roadside attractions and general oddities. He has a wicked and hearty sense of humor. As W.M. Hunt celebrates them, these works are, for the most part, short tales, postcards home from the road.

The photographic journey
Graham’s lens finds the space between private expression and public vulgarity hinting of a future where commercial billboards and handmade quilts are hanging in the same museum. Graham’s work is rooted in the element of juxtaposition, interpretation, and the embrace of the everyday American experience.
The photographer's vision
“When I started shooting the 8×10, it was so slow and so expensive that I wanted to get the most out of it, so I loaded in detail, color, subject, historical references, and humor. I wanted everything. I am always looking for absurdity in any situation, photographic or otherwise. I try and have elements of joy and melancholy in all the pictures”.
