Paul Graham | Television Portraits

This by far has to be my favorite Paul Graham series. something so plain and ordinary became something interesting, funny and quirky.

The TV portraits are intimate documentary photos. The series came about by Paul taking a spontaneous photo of his flat mate. Now the series features many people watching TV around the world.

The photograph is taken while the individual is fixed on watching the TV and in a way becomes unaware of the photographer.

I found a link to an interesting description of Paul’s earlier work and in contrast his new work.
