PaulCrampton is an internationally award winning Canadian photographer who tries to capture still life with a wide-angled story. His images are usually objects that are familiar and recognizable but are presented in such a way that makes the viewer want to know more. The name of each shot is as important as the image itself, and because the name is slightly cryptic, it holds the onlooker’s attention a little longer and makes them think “wider”. The visual work should capture the interest of the patron for more than seven seconds and hopefully the name will extend that time through to the story behind the picture. All of the images are created with medium format B&W film and are developed and printed in the personal darkroom of the artist.
