The photographed world is not an archive of objects set before a lens. It is a culmination of unique experiences, world views, and personal philosophies rendered together, visually, through a variety of manual, optical and digital techniques. Cronin’s approach to image making references the history of art and photography, while at the same time employing contemporary components that expand the technical and conceptual limits of the medium.
