Taylor Graham

Taylor Graham is a National Geographic Explorer and multimedia storyteller based in Salt Lake City, UT. As a Fulbright-Nehru Research Scholar in India, he produced a series of documentary shorts about India’s diverse water challenges, including tackling a first descent on one of the Ganges’ last remaining free-flowing tributaries with a team of Indian whitewater kayakers. Closer to home, Taylor was awarded a National Geographic Explorer Grant and led a 350-mile, sea-kayak-based exploration of Lake Powell and the Colorado River to produce a film about the impacts of climate change and the history of water infrastructure development in the West. The resultant award-winning documentary film Glen Canyon Rediscovered, premiered on National Geographic’s short film showcase and has screened at film festivals across the country. Taylor aims is to use storytelling to explore the impacts of climate change on water resources and advocate for the protection of the world’s last free-flowing rivers.
