Review

Megan Ajioka’s short documentary provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of LA-based conceptual artist Grey Crawford. In this 15-minute exploration, Crawford discusses his artistic influences, drawing inspiration from the creative renaissance of the 1960s, and delves into the intricate process behind his own unique photographic artistry.
