Douglas Graham is a photojournalist by profession. A career newspaper photographer since 1982, he has been in the middle of some of the most important news stories of the past two decades. Graham has been chased by a crackhead trying to steal his cameras, slammed into by a bank robber during a high-speed chase, tear-gassed, pepper-sprayed, spit on by protesters, arrested and shook the hand of the President in the Oval Office—while winning many national and international photography awards along the way.
