Gregory Crewdson 1985-2005
Edited by Stephan Berg
Hatje Cantz Verlag
In his photographs, Gregory Crewdson presents artfully condensed stories
that essentially deal with the penetration of the mysterious into normalcy.
Crewdson goes to great lengths in dramatizing his disturbing suburban
scenes, employing means more typical of Hollywood film productions (elaborate
lighting, cranes, props, etc.) and extras, he stages his scenes, which
are at the same time always an accurate portrayal of everyday life in
America, with obsessive attention to detail.
This publication is the first to assemble all of the artist's photographic
productions in a single volume and includes his most recent, previously
unpublished series Beneath the Roses.
