Douglas Graham is a career newspaper photographer since 1982, he has been in the middle of some of the most important news stories of the past two decades. Graham has been chased by a crackhead trying to steal his cameras, slammed into by a bank robber during a high-speed chase, tear-gassed, pepper-sprayed, spit on by protesters, arrested and shook the hand of the President in the Oval Office while winning many national and international photography awards along the way. This body of work, however, says more about who Graham is than any one of the thousands of news images he has captured. Being outdoors and close to nature takes him back to his youth, where he grew up on the coast of Virginia with a family that spent every possible moment outside. There he learned to hunt, fish and love the natural world.
