Photo Friday: Gregory Crewdson

March 27th, 2009 by Ross

So this week I am going to introduce you to one of my favorite photographers of all time. His name is Gregory Crewdson. Crewdson is a photographer unlike most others in that his productions for his images are probably the most elaborate I have ever seen. His images are narratives in themselves which leave the viewer with numerous story possibilities. Its pretty amazing when you look at these images in person and can see all the details up close and tell all of the time and effort that is put into making a single image. I once saw a lighting diagram for his images and its incredible all the lights that are used to make a single image, but I guess that is what you get when you hire a Director of Photography to light your images for you. Either way I hope you enjoy the images and if you’re interested in hearing a better explanation of the process involved in the making of his images you can see an interesting interview here and there is a really awesome interactive article with production photos here.

    Yeah dude he’s amazing. He has a book out (not sure if it’s new or not) but it’s great, and actually has lighting diagrams of a few of his images, and some behind the scene footage of the actual rigging and setups.
