Almost Paradise is a colorful and engaging book of photographs by David Graham, a well recognized American photographer. The photographs in this book document the American cultural landscape and in particular the intersection of the commercial world and Americans’ desire to express their singularity. Known for his warm embrace of his subjects, this book extends beyond the embrace and includes a critique of modern America. This is done through the pairing and sequencing of pictures in order to create a visual narrative that leaves the reader both excited and concerned.

With a playful and charming story, noted writer, Jack Hitt, introduces us to the unexpected world ahead, describing an interior life that echoes Graham’s observations of the exterior world. - pond press
