Graham says: "Introduced to photography by my father when I was eight, my PhD in behavioural science used statistical image analysis. My first photographic article was in Camera Weekly in 1986. Today, I teach psychology and photography in Further and Higher Education, and research psychology-photography interfaces particularly using imagery to influence communities."
