Iain Crawford

Iain Crawford is an incredibly forceful photographer. He often speaks of his kinetic relationship with his work (perhaps the reason for the title of his newest series “Kinetic”), and how naturally augmenting the relationship between beauty and chaos can be.  As much fun as splashing gorgeous women with buckets of paint seems to be, I personally like the scientific aspect of his work more. The force of momentum crashing against an organic object (such as a model’s face) creates such an innate sense of reality (and, oddly enough, calm) that his photographs simply work.

But, aside from his Kinetic  series, for which he is most popular, his still works are just as interesting.  His use of composition and texture definitely go full throttle and create an alarming amount of drama.

He was recently asked to make his directorial debut for the up-and-coming band Seasfire, which can be viewed at the bottom of this post. Though it is too 90’s (“Just look into the camera and touch yourself.”) and I can’t say the model/ballerina’s acting was all very well done, I think it does create a interesting link between his photographic work and his mind.
