Text: From Craig’s works, we can discover his unique and great eye. For example, a lamp post or stairway are common objects to us in the urban environment, but from his works, we get a totally different and new feeling. Craig chooses to see things differently, and to observe their graphic and geometric forms. Many photographers tend to use fixed zoom and focus to get a full perspective. Craig most prefers his 50-200mm lens to highlight the detail.

Craig looks for simplicity, in context and form, as well as in composition, or in color. He explained the limits of photography, unlike that of a movie which allows 30 frames per second to tell a story. Each photo only has a single frame, and needs to be fully utilized. A photo consists of many elements, color, context and form, light, etc. Many tend to capture too much into one photo, while Craig chooses to create the simplest point of view and focus.
