Graeme Williams


My work is housed in many permanent collections including: The Smithsonian (USA), The North Carolina Museum of Fine Art (USA) Duke University (USA). I have staged solo exhibitions in Johannesburg, New York and Paris, Cape Town and London and have contributed to many combined exhibitions on contemporary South African photography; including the 2011 Figures and Fictions exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the 2014 Apartheid and After exhibition at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam. My series, As the grass grows, were included in the Louis Vuitton Foundation’s Being There, a collective exhibition showcasing contemporary South African art. During 2013 I was awarded the POPCAP Prize for Contemporary African Photography as well as the Ernest Cole Book Award. In 2014 a selection of my images was included in the Aperture Summer Open exhibition. Photographic assignments have taken me to fifty countries. ​
