Marina Crawford

I was born in Ottawa, Canada, and have been a west coast resident for nineteen years. My photographic experience goes back thirty-two years. I have worked extensively in colour and black and white both digitally and non-digitally, and I am primarily self-taught. My work has been described as “painterly in quality”, which is very fitting since I have always wanted to capture a sense of surrealism in the commonplace scenes I photograph, however, I pride myself on exhibiting non-manipulated images. My personal philosophy on photography is that it should portray slices of life as well as evoke emotion.

I have exhibited in Ontario and British Columbia and presently have work in several locations and galleries on the Sunshine Coast.
