Canadian photographer Michael Graydon is a real favourite at the moment. There's something clean and classic about his images, a feeling of unadorned warmth that seems to hark back to the Pentax Spotmatic that first introduced him to photography.
Falling broadly into the 'life' photographer category – Graydon classifies his photos into 'Rooms', 'Dining', 'Yards' and 'Weekends' – his are minutely observed postcards from an inviting elsewhere: nostalgic and sunlit. Maybe it's just the SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) talking, but browsing through these houses, gardens and lives at the tail-end of a long winter makes the last remaining overcast weeks seem that much more bearable. Keep an eye out for Graydon's work in Smith volume four.
