Photography

Crewdson, Gregory (1962)

Inspired to become a photographer by Diane Arbus whose work he discovered at ten at the MOMA, and influenced by Jeff Wall’s manner, Gregory Crewdson imagines dark and quiet depictions of America. Populated by solitary figures and quite disturbing atmospheres, the American photographer’s images evoke the narrative touch of films and it is no surprise when one knows that Gregory Crewdson utilizes the same means as cinema with carefully studio staged and lit photographs. He links a documentary observation with a surreal cinematic manner - ‘I looked at the blurred lines between reality and fiction, nature and artifice, and beauty and decay’. A haunting insight that echoes the works of Edward Hopper and David Lynch as well as it reveals what lies underneath the polished outlines of the American dream.
