Graham French was born in 1951 in London, England. He studied photography at the Guilford School of Art, and worked briefly in London before moving to Canada in 1976.
For 30+ years Graham worked as an advertising photographer on a wide variety of assignments for Canadian and international clients. He has been recognized many times for his creative contribution to advertising photography and has won numerous awards from significant industry publications and organizations.
He took a year’s sabbatical in 1989 to travel throughout North America – from Alaska to Mexico – a trip that profoundly shaped both his photographic vision and his desire to document the wide-open, majestic, uninhabited vistas of our natural world.
The images created on this journey formed the beginning of his portfolio of landscapes. Although he returned to Toronto, whenever time permitted he “escaped” from the advertising business and traveled beyond North America to Central and South America, and Africa to photograph the land.
Disappearing Landscapes (2008), a solo show in Toronto, was the first time Graham’s work was exhibited as a comprehensive collection. In 2009, 14 of Graham’s images were chosen for inclusion in the collection of University Hospitals, Cleveland, Ohio.
Graham continues to exhibit his work as each new collection is created.
Graham French’s entire portfolio of work is available both framed and unframed through 2gallery. Please visit www.grahamfrench.com to view all the collections. Please contact us for further information on formats, edition sizes and pricing.
