Gregory Crewdson is an American photographer depicting American neighborhoods and homes to appear haunting, cinematic and eerie. When he was young he was part of a punk music band that helped to create Gregory Gregory's now famous art career. The song, "Let Me Take Your Photo", sang by the band was a great inspiration to him. His photographs are of small towns in America featuring disturbing and strange events all created from staged sets. The events in Gregory Crewdson's photos are very detailed and use light crews with knowledge in the motion picture industry. He also uses the equipment and techniques from the motion picture industry to create his images. Gregory's work combines documentary style with dream-like vision. He builds complicated and detailed sets to create photos of exceptional detail with a narrative warning of danger. His work called, Natural Wonder is a series of photographs with insects, body parts and animals. These images all appear in a small town setting and appear both monotonous and menacing. Gregory Crewdson likes the power of turning something ordinary into something magical and other worldly. His work in 1962 reworking an American suburb into a set that was inexplicable helped him to develop a process that resembled film making. He called these photos, "frozen moments" and used a large crew to shoot and then develop images during post-production. He planned and staged every detail to be photographed and even used special effects to create the scene he wanted captured. Gregory's series of pictures that took him nearly ten years to complete was complied into ""Beneath the Roses."" This series was part of a documentary on Gregory in 2012 by Ben Shapiro. His recent works, "In a Lonely Place" has traveled to galleries and museums across Europe, New Zealand and Australia. His work is widely exhibited in the United States as well, and his career has now spanned three decades. Less
