When UK photographer Paul Graham’s set of books ‘A Shimmer of Possibility’ first appeared in 2007, they caused more than a ripple in the photography world. He joins Andrew Tuck and Robert Bound to discuss a new reissue of the work – and why focusing on the US of today is just as important as looking back at the one he captured a decade ago.
