Paul Graham has a new bookwork, Does Yellow Run Forever? - due for publication this month by MACK. The book comprises a series of photographs touching upon the ephemeral question of what we seek and value in life – love, wealth, beauty, clear-eyed reality or an inner dream world?
The work weaves in and out of three groups of images: photographs of rainbows from Western Ireland, a sleeping dreamer, and gold stores in the United States. The imagery weaves us in and out of reality, dream and illusion, between fact and spectral phenomena, each entwined one within the other.
Does Yellow Run Forever? refuses to reduce the world to a knowable schema, but instead embraces the puzzle - that there are no singular meanings, direct answers, or gold waiting at the end of the rainbow. Yet, there are startling visions in the everyday, be they ‘beautiful’ or ‘ugly’, that there are dreams worth dreaming, magical scenes to be seen, and true moments of wonder to be found as we shiver the mirror of life.
96 pages / 31 colour plates / 13.5 cm x 19 cm / embossed hardcover / €35.00 £30.00 50.00
