It is incumbent upon visionary artists to lead visionary lives and Jeremy Mason McGraw has lived none other. Traveling the world by ship, living in luxury hotels, exploring avenues from those in St. Julian’s Malta to Komodo Island.
With a background in live theatre, laser shows, pyrotechnics and staged illusion, it’s no surprise that McGraw’s work has been described as camera-made storytelling paintings. Anything but your average photographer, Jeremy consistently produces work that is anything but average.
Jeremy owes a large part of his unique style to his history with magic and theatre and to his experience as a painter. By the age of 15, he was already performing magic shows at a theme park, and molded his love of live performance into a career in set and lighting design. By 18, he’d received several awards, both domestic and international for his painting. It wasn’t until a photography class revealed to Jeremy the possibilities inherent in the artform that he relinquished the brush and canvass in deference to the camera and contact sheet.
Since then, his camera has been busy flying him to the four corners of the globe, shooting for the world’s finest hotels, films, television, magazines and live entertainment productions.
Regardless of setting or subject matter, McGraw’s objective is always the same; to find a story in the subject, retell that story to the viewer allow them to connect with it. Jeremy hopes that you will find your story in his images. To follow his, go to www.JeremyMasonMcGraw.com and join his online community.…Read More
