What do you think about his work?
he's great and creates some amazing images but domr of it is a bit too much on the nose david lynch/creepy naked chick.
love this one: http://theworldofphotographers.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/gregory-crewdson-10.jpg?w=720
”I think I always have been drawn to photography because I want to construct a perfect world. I want to try to create this moment that is separate from the chaos of my life, and to do that I think I create enormous disorder. And I like that craziness because I think that it creates almost a sort of neurotic energy on the set, and through that there is a moment of transportation. And in all my pictures what I am ultimately interested in is that moment of transcendence or transportation, where one is transported into another place, into a perfect, still world. Despite my compulsion to create this still world, it always meets up against the impossibility of doing so. So, I like the collision between this need for order and perfection and how it collides with a sense of the impossible. I like where possibility and impossibly meet.”
Back int' day. I find his work a bit bloated and overwrought now. So much staging goes into the shots and they're often no more striking than those of his contemporaries. Gimme Lorca diCorcia or Eggleston over Crewdson any day.
