During the terrorist attacks on Paris in November 2015, photographer Paul Graham took refuge in an apartment in the city with his partner and young child.
In response to the suffocating tension on the city's streets, he made this series. Looking at the images you would never know of the traumatic events unfolding outside, but suffusing the photographs is an inscrutable longing for the safe, the everyday, the known.
Paul Graham was born in 1956 in Stafford, England. He is has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships including the Deutsche Bцrse Photography Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Hasselblad Award and the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photo Book Awards prize for best photographic book of the past 15 years.
He has exhibited at Tate Gallery, MoMA, Whitney Museum of American Art, Deichtorhallen and Fotomuseum Winterthur amongst many others
