Julie Grahame, 2019, by David McIntyre


What is your favorite museum for photography?

My fondest memories are of the Photographers’ Gallery in London, although not a museum it felt like one to me as a student. Otherwise, no favorite. 


What helped you get through the pandemic?

Knowing that I could still do something to help people even sequestered in my one bed apartment. I ran a fundraiser with my friend, the photographer Janette Beckman. We worked with 50 photographers to sell prints of musicians, and raised over $50,000 for God’s Love We Deliver, a non-sectarian food charity in NY. Plus cannabis and Peroni and a patient partner.


What was the best book you read/viewed last year?

The Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap


What are your favorite instagram feeds?










What piece of advice would you give your younger self?

Always read to the end before you start answering.
