Charlene Graham Photography | Philosophy


     As a photographer, I serve as both artist and chronicler of history.  Photographs  allow history to spring to life; they preserve generations of the past as they look to the future. Yet photographs are more than authenticating evidence of those come and gone: they capture both physical and emotional expressions of beauty, reflections of the unparalleled human soul. 

     Photography is a means by which one is able to retell the story of humanity. Where words fail, photography sustains, as a singular language in itself.  Our stories are important and should be honored. How will you tell yours? 

     "We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory."  

- Henri Carter Bresson
