A definitive and comprehensive survey of the work of one of America’s best-known and most acclaimed photographers. Renowned for his melancholic, dramatic, and painterly images of small-town America, Gregory Crewdson has evolved over a nearly thirty-year career into one of the world’s most acclaimed and recognizable photographers. With a meticulous approach that has been likened to that of a film director, Crewdson typically works with a large crew and extremely technical sets to achieve a remarkably atmospheric and textured perspective. His fanatical attention to light and location creates a vision of life at once familiar and haunting; his artistic vision seems in line with those of Edward Hopper and David Lynch. Published together for the first time are images from each of his many series of work, from the little-seen black-and-white images of Fireflies to more recent masterpieces such as Beneath the Roses and Sanctuary. With a narrative of short stories written specially to accompany each series by Jonathan Lethem, an introductory overview by Nancy Spector, and an essay by Melissa Harris on his unique process, this is the definitive monograph on the work of a true contemporary master of photography.
