    • “A don’t-miss exhibit this spring is Ashes and Snow, more than 200 literally amazing large-scale photographic works and an accompanying 35mm film that are the fruit of the artist’s 13-year personal and artistic odyssey..capturing extraordinary moments of contact between man and animal.” NYC

  • William Crump – Images
    • “Through an ironic brand of self-deprecating humor, Crump’s images remake our childish dreams into a more forgiving view of our present circumstances.  His work is an enlightened revision of a distinctly American question: how to cross the desert between our heroes and ourselves. The answer: with beauty and humor.”
