"During the terrorist attacks on Paris in November 2015, photographer Paul Graham took refuge in an apartment in the city with his partner and young child. In response to the suffocating tension on the city's streets, he made this series. Looking at the images you would never know of the traumatic events unfolding outside, but suffusing the photographs is an inscrutable longing for the safe, the everyday, the known.
Paul Graham was born in 1956 in Stafford, England. He is has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships including the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Hasselblad Award and the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photo Book Awards prize for best photographic book of the past 15 years. His publications include The Whiteness of the Whale (MACK, 2015), Does Yellow Run Forever? (MACK, 2014), The Present (MACK, 2012), 1981 & 2011 (MACK, 2012), a shimmer of possibility (MACK, 2007), Films (MACK, 2011), American Night (MACK, 2003) and End of an Age (Scalo, 1999). He has exhibited at Tate Gallery, MoMA, Whitney Museum of American Art, Deichtorhallen and Fotomuseum Winterthur amongst many others.

Das Buch 'Paris 11-15th November, 2015' behandelt die persönliche Sicht eines britischen Fotografen, Paul Graham, auf das terroristische Geschehen im November 2015 in der französischen Hauptstadt.
Wie auch andere Fotografen befand er sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt in Paris, da hier alljährlich Europas wichtigste Fotokunstmesse stattfindet. Aus diesem Grunde treffen sich Galeristen, Fotografen, Sammler und Verleger, um sich zu feiern.
Die Attentate standen dazu in starkem Kontrast; der Ort der Veranstaltung, wie sämtliche öffentliche Orte waren am Sonntag danach geschlossen - viele Fotografen verbrachten den Tag auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise.
Paul Grahams Band ist still und nachdenklich; die Zeit scheint stillzustehen. So haben sich damals viele Franzosen und Freunde vor Ort gefühlt.
