Several of Crewdson’s students are now successful photographers in their own right.
I liked some of the photos a lot, but the crime scene renderings of dreamscapes got monotonous awfully quickly. I look at it the way I look at stills from a movie. Really weird photos staged crewdaon created as if for theater or film.

Gergory pochissime foto hanno una potenza grregory tale da far soffermare lo sguardo. Downcast or brooding anonymous figures, some with a sexually flat affect.

But then comes the brief period the artist considers perfect twilight. There’s something magical about the condition.
For Crewdson, a graduate lecturer at Yale School of Art and mentor to a whole generation of young and, coincidentally, mainly female photographers, the dying light is singularly suited to his spooked vision. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
His photographs depict scenes of anxiety and dislocation: These eerie and evocative photographs pair beauty with horror, obsession with disgust, and the real with the surreal, suggesting narratives open to endless interpretations. Crewdson creates the most amazing stories with his staged images.
