Chris Cranford photo wins award

Cranfords Palms
  • Cranford's "Palms"

Chris Cranford, creative director of Jones Film Video, won first place in the 15th International Krappy Kamera photography competition sponsored by Soho Photo Gallery in New York. His entry, a black and white photo shot with film, was selected by jurors who looked at 1,200 entries from 180 photographers and 12 foreign countries, the CJRW website has announced. (His father is a retired principal in CJRW, an advertising company.)

The Krappy Kamera competition was created by Soho in 1992 in response to photographers' admission that "they preferred using their junky cameras to their high-end ones," the gallery says. Cranford used a Holga to shoot his winning work, "Palms."

Forty-seven artists were chosen for the show, which opens March 5 at Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White St., with a 6-8 p.m. reception.
