From the article:
"His personal journey has had a few twists and turns. Like many of us, Mr. Graham took up photography when he discovered he couldn’t draw. A friend returned home from college bearing a sketchbook, and while Mr. Graham was smitten, he knew his limitations. Another photographer was born. He ended up at the Philadelphia College of Art — now called the University of the Arts — studying under Ray Metzker. Mr. Metzker, who died recently, had a great impact on a generation of Philadelphia photographers, and Mr. Graham was no exception."
