Gregory Crewdson at the White Cube

I went to see the Gregory Crewdson show at the White Cube in Mason’s Yard and fell instantly in love with his work. His photographs are a mixture of things I am obsessed with: small town America, voyeurism, oppressing atmospheres… I am not going to list everything here, but you get it.

His work is in a way quite similar to Jeff Wall’s, giant photographs, staged action, almost like film stills. Photo equivalent of Hopper. Screen caps from a Lynch film.

Everywhere, creepiness takes over.

I suck at bowling. Big time.

    oh man, i love this guy. he’s my fave. i’m so glad he’s finally concluded the beneath the roses series as it started to get a little stagnant. im glad he’s at least trying newer stuff tho.
    i was lucky enough to go to the opening of the first set of beneath the roses and he was there but i didn’t say hello… im such an awkward teenager sometimes.
    ferry bought me that book of his, the one with every series he’d done and at the back was this amazing section explaining how each photograph is taken. so amazing.
    …yep, photography is literally the only thing i like. /long comment

    ps, the white cube @ masons yard is so nice looking!
