Artist Statement

JAMES A. CRAWFORD PHOTOGRAPHY Crawford's interest in art began in high school and further developed at Orange Coast College where he majored in Architecture and minored in History and Art.

Upon his return to the States, Crawford lived and worked in Laguna Beach, Ca. pursuing an Architectural career while continuing to photograph and interacting with area artists. In 1976 James moved to San Luis Obispo to further his education at Cal Poly where he majored in Architecture and minored in Photography. At the time, photography was in the Journalism Department and then transferred to the Art Department. James thus enjoyed the best of both disciplines.

It's where your creativity leads on the computer, or the darkroom.

Some of those artists are Mondrian, Braque, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Klee, the Architect Antonio Gaudi ...   Read More
