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to assemble all of the artist's photographic productions in a single volume and includes his most recent, previously unpublished series Beneath the Roses.
