In End of an Age, British photographer Paul Graham captures the threshold moments that mark the ending of adolescence, the small slice of time between youthful indulgence and the emerging awareness of adult responsibilities. His photographs resonate between these two poles: between full-on consciousness and escape; between staring the world in the eye or shying away; between seeing the world with shocking clarity and the desire to hide oneself from that reality: turn away, get drunk, close your eyes, get stoned. It is a situation that each of knows and remembers all too well, a traumatic time. And it is often the threshold of a profound psychological transformation – a chartless sea in which one might successfully navigate, get becalmed, or simply drown. ( from the publisher )
