Graham Dickie is an itinerant photographer and filmmaker from Austin, Texas, U.S.A. He is currently a visiting Alexia Foundation scholar in the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in Central New York, following stints in China, Southeast Africa, West Texas, and Denmark.
Graham graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with highest honors in the Plan II honors program and journalism. While still a student he trained journalists in Maputo, Mozambique; worked at a documentary film studio in Austin; and filed radio reports from the National Public Radio member station in Marfa, Texas, covering topics that ranged from ranching to small-town Texas boxing.
After graduation from UT Graham followed the ancient Silk Road from Kazakhstan to Beijing, eventually photographing the modernization of the rural plains of northeast China and working at Three Shadows Photography Art Centre (三影堂摄影艺术中心), the leading space for photography in the country.
From China he went to Scandinavia, where he helped construct the Brothas Center for Fishing and Photography on a remote stretch of Danish coastline while apprenticing with the Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol for much of 2018.
Graham's ongoing work on rural hip-hop in the American South won first place in The Alexia Foundation's student competition in 2018. In 2017 he was selected to attend the 30th Eddie Adams Workshop in New York.
