BIO
GREGProfile001

I grew up in a small coastal town in Rhode Island, home to beach bums and fishermen alike, and attended The George Washington University. During college I played Division I soccer and majored in visual communications, all the while volunteering for photo editors at National Geographic.

In August of 2012, I co-founded GRAIN with my wife, Lexey Swall, and my close friend and colleague Tristan Spinski.

I concentrate on issues that shape personal and cultural identity. My Pulitzer Prize nominated project, “It’s Not a House, It’s a Home,” explores how the foreclosure crisis in Florida defined a new class of homelessness. My recent project in Cuba considers how governance molds individuality. And in my ongoing project 3 Millimeters, the quiet depletion of land is the catalyst for the evolution of the inhabitants’ identity.
