Graham Howe (b. 1950) completed his Diploma in Art & Design in Photography at Prahran College, Melbourne in 1972 and moved to London to become one of the first employees of the Photographers’ Gallery, London. In 1973 he assisted Gail Buckland cataloguing the historic collection of London’s Royal Photographic Society. Late in 1973 Howe was appointed as the founding director of the Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney, where he established the exhibitions, publications, and lecture programs.

Traveling to the United States in 1975, Howe visited all the major photography university programs across the country eventually choosing UCLA where, in 1976, he undertook graduate studies in Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts, majoring in photography. Among his teachers were Robert Heinecken, William Brice, Chris Burden and Alan Jones. Among his colleagues were John Divola and Jo Ann Callis. Graduating in 1979 Howe, worked as the curator to the Graham Nash Collection while continuing his work as an artist, and writer on photographic history. From 1984 to 1985 Howe worked as a Visiting Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. In 1987 Howe created the independent curatorial organization, Curatorial Assistance, Inc. specialising in the creation and touring of art exhibitions to museums worldwide. To date Curatorial Assistance has circulated over 350 exhibitions to more than 860 museums worldwide.

Curated by Colin Westerbeck, Howe’s mid-career survey exhibition of his photographic works opened at the California Museum of Photography, Riverside, (CMP) on September 26, 2009. Howe’s first monograph Graham Howe: Sly Conspiracies Photographs 1968-2008 has recently been published by the CMP.
