Winter beach erosion in Sunset Beach, CA

Photography can help us interpret the journey. We are all on the same journey but take a thousand different paths.  We make our stops at interesting places; we encounter new sights and revisit familiar haunts.  At times we travel light and other times are burdened by the baggage we insist accompany us.  We share our experience with others either on parallel paths or at random intersections. The camera has been a companion on my journeys, and my images enable me to create new intersections with others.  For me, the strongest photographs reach us on a deeply personal level and ring of familiarity with respect to our own journey.


Dreams by Lawrence Crandall


We can’t escape our capacity for being subjective: from pointing the lens to choosing the subject and location, everything about an image conveys much about the creator of the image.  Yet dreams can be universal. In the world of dreams and visions, one can transcend culture and language.  Music and much of art is capable of this transcendence. And sometimes, photography. Such stuff as dreams are made of…an ongoing collection.




Travelers from every path remind us of the fullness and diversity of the shared human experience. “Them and Us” is a pivotal point for either celebrating human diversity or reinforcing intolerance. Put away the selfies and turn that camera outward.
