May Graham is a qualified social care worker but her passion is photography.
She is a self-taught photographer born and raised in the Shetland Islands. She’s always had a creative streak and
this was apparent when she discovered her passion for photography in her mid-twenties.
May always looks for natural light to use in her images. “I am a shadow and natural light hunter, I feel that
shadows add depth and dimensions to my images. I enjoy finding photographs that capture candid moments. I photograph people in their natural environment because I want to preserve intimate moments in time”.
May embraces the freedom of being a self-taught photographer and continues to learn and develop every day on
her journey in photography.
Two of my Mays images were recently selected for exhibitions at the Glasgow Gallery of Photography. These exhibitions were
titled the International Monochrome Exhibition and the International Lockdown Exhibition.
