William C. Crawford

This is William C. Crawford’s fourth photobook. His other works are “Drive-By Shooting: Crawdaddy Shoots His Car To North Carolina” (2019); “Forensic Foraging: Photography to Unlock the Invisible” (together with Jim Provencher, 2018) and “Just like Sunday on the farm: Crawdaddy remembers the name and after” (2016).

For the title of his recently published book, photographer and writer William C. “Bill” Crawford chose “Crawdaddy Chases the Money Shot”.

The phrase “the cash shot” is often used by Jim Provencher, a fellow photojournalist.

“He always jokes, ‘Well, we’re going out today to get the cash shots,” Crawford said. “Because he kept bombarding me with that term, I decided to fold it into a book cover.”

Crawford, who lives in Winston-Salem, stated that a cash shot could be a money maker.

But he said, “It more generally refers to a shot that has obvious value. It’s a good shot. “

“Crawdaddy Chases the Money Shot” is Crawford’s fourth photo book. His other works are “Drive-By Shooting: Crawdaddy Shoots His Car To North Carolina” (2019); “Forensic Foraging: Photography to Unlock the Invisible” (together with Jim Provencher, 2018) and “Just like Sunday on the farm: Crawdaddy remembers the name and after” (2016).

He began taking photos as a combat photojournalist in the Vietnamese army in 1969. At 76 he is a retired social worker.

“I was a social worker, but I was always a writer and photographer at different stages of my life after Vietnam,” Crawford said.
