Taylor Graham

Multimedia storyteller and National Geographic Explorer Taylor Graham has focused much of his work around the human connection to water and riverways. He spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar in the Indian Rajasthan state producing a series of documentaries about water challenges in the region. Graham made the documentary Taming the Teesta (2015) and completed a 350-mile through-paddle of the Colorado River and Lake Powell as part of a National Geographic Society-supported project and documentary, Glen Canyon Rediscovered (2018), which focused on water management challenges in the Colorado River Basin. In conjunction with this project, he also produced Seldom Seen Sleight (Mountainfilm 2018). Graham is the co-director of Water Flows Together (Mountainfilm 2020), a film that speaks to the importance of acknowledging indigenous land in outdoor recreation.
