BillWilliam C. Crawford shoots the trite, trivial, & mundane using a photographic style called forensic foraging. Developed by Crawford, Sydney Lensman, and Jim Provencher, forensic foraging downplays extensive computer intervention and emphasizes composition, framing, high color saturation, and contrast. The genre flowed from the early work of Stephen Shore, especially his Amarillo postcards. The DNA of Robert Frank and Walker Evans is also evident.
