These images document commercial buildings and storefronts in and around Portland, Maine that are unchanged since the photographer’s arrival as a university student in the mid-1970s. Recognizing the suddenly accelerating shifts in Portland’s business landscape, Graham sought to capture parts of the urban landscape likely to disappear. Influenced by Walker Evans and other FSA photographers of the 1930s, he is particularly focused on signage and architecture. In the years since the images were made in December 2018 and January 2019, many of these businesses have closed and their visual presence in the cityscape has been lost.
