Yvette Coronado submits Gregory Crewdson
Soundstages, lighting crews, and set designers are all part of Gregory Crewdson's photography. Crewdson's enormous production brings the sublime to each of his photographs. These photos are similar to film stills, full of fine lighting and intriguing back drops.They present a story to the viewer and begs the question,"what has just happened and what is going to happen next?" Crewdson's surreal imagery captures the feeling of anticipation in a dreamlike manner, especially with his use of light.I enjoy photographers that incorporate strong narrative elements in their work and Crewdson definitely delivers. Here's a link to a great interview with Crewdson in Aperture Magazine. http://www.aperture.org/crewdson.
