Rare European exhibition catalogue. Paul Graham's A Shimmer of Possibilitiy, his 12 volume opus of 2007, cemented his place as one of the most influential figures in contemporary photography. This astonishing retrospective illustrates the deliberate evolution of his vision from the three early books that serve as a critique of Thatcher's Britain in the 80s to his evolving muscular style through a range of perfectly conceived monographs for Scalo in the 90s to the present day.
