Crystal’s dedication to traditional film photography is the catalyst for her work. By the use of vintage cameras, unique films, and an endless curiosity of developing techniques, she is able to present a viewer with an interpretation of a private and vulnerable world that she experiences. Her work reinvents for the viewer a journey; a place in time; and objects overlooked or forgotten.
These reinventions are an opening, and viewers are encouraged to experience and have conversations that share their experiences with hers. Crystal’s hope is that her work will evoke responses in her viewers that define their experience with her images.
