William C. Crawford (Crawdaddy) is a writer & photographer living in Winston-Salem, NC. He was a combat photojournalist in Vietnam. He later enjoyed a long career in social work. Crawdaddy also taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He photographs the trite, trivial, and mundane. Crawford developed the forensic foraging technique of photography with his colleague Jim Provencher. His photos presented here embody this approach. They feature extensive shooting of everything encountered. The images are then selectively presented with heavy contrast and saturation. The genre uses minimal computer manipulation.
