I Heart Gregory Crewdson
I’ve admired Gregory Crewdson’s work for many years even before I worked at APERTURE Foundation, where his work has appeared in the Foundation’s magazine and website. I love that each of his cinematic images could tell myriad stories. He captures every detail of the moment with such care and precision that the images transcend the quotidian to become almost preternatural. No wonder his only commercial project was for HBO’s Six Feet Under, still one of my favorite TV shows of all time. You can see more about his process at APERTURE’s website and also in the documentary that came out last year: Gregory Crewdson Brief Encounters (see last image below), which I haven’t yet seen but it’s on my list!
