Arriving in the USA from London in 1997 Graham Hobart offers a unique approach to photography. Growing up during a civil war in Africa as well as having lived on three continents may explain why his work is anything but ordinary. At age ten he was carving stone at the feet of native Zimbabwean artists . While still in high school he began casting bronze sculptures and painting in oils. This was followed by a period of where he began to explore as much of the African subcontinent as he could, often by canoe or bicycle simply because roads did not exist.
"It was during these travels that I realized that I just had to have a camera to record all those incredible experiences", Hobart says when asked about the transition to becoming a photographer in 1985. So from the simple desire to share his stories with others he bought his first camera and the next great adventure began.
After so many years the thrill of the pursuit for the perfect image hasn't left Hobart. He explains, "Because people trust me with a camera I feel like I have been given a VIP pass to so many amazing events and experiences that otherwise wouldn't be available to me."
Hobart has continued to involve himself in many diverse interests ranging from sculpture, to racing sail boats, to supporting the arts and wildlife conservation.
