To mark the iminent release of Paul Graham’s latest book The Present, published by Mack Books, I thought I would post a print I bought that Graham released through the Whitechapel Gallery last year as part of his retrospective. The image is taken from his New Europe series, created in the early 90’s. This series sought to dig beneath the sheen of a newly unified Europe and remind us of the historical events that shaped the countries we know today. His work touches on the dictatorships of Franco and Hitler, the Holocaust and the Irish conflict and weaves these references in to images of todays society.
The print (55.88 x 43.18cm), was produced in an edition of 115 and a few are still available directly from the gallery here.
