A woman floats in her flooded living room, a cow appears to have fallen from the sky onto a front lawn, a gang of teenagers, seemingly hypnotized, pile up household objects for a bonfire. Created as elaborately staged tableaux, this series of im Twilight: Created as elaborately staged tableaux, this series of images suggests the bizarre yet beautiful surrealities behind deceptively familiar suburban facades. Scheduled to accompany three simultaneous gallery exhibitions in Spring and a subsequent retrospective at Mass MoCA, this book chronicles the completion of the Twilight series, which Crewdson began in Including both production stills and the 40 finished images, all in full color, it also features an essay by Rick Moody, a novelist equally renowned for exposing the underbelly of small-town, middle-class America.

Large forest fowl pick around the edges of a dense thicket of columns made of stacked sandwiches on white bread. A giant cone of mounded flowers and moss appears in the middle of the street in a modest neighborhood, to block traffic and draw locals to stare and climb. Puzzling scenes of domestic, local, or supernatural strife are signalled by abandoned cars, befuddled emergency responders, or more extreme displacements inside and outside the home.
Perhaps less of one if a photographer captures spontaneous reality, more than one if a photographer just takes pictures. Gregory Crewdson creates tableaux vivants not of mythical scenes or famous paintings, but of enigmatic disruptions of everyday North American life.
Ranging in appearance from avant garde installation pieces of gloom and organic matter to stills from a lost David Lynch movie, this collection’s constructed photographic art pieces reverberate with one theme: The settings are all suburban, and the spectrum of wrongness extends from just a hint of tone to the nightmarish: But the urge to solve the mysteries the pictures present is forgivable, while a part of us well, me anyway wants them to remain just beyond the sensible.
View all 3 comments. Jul 09, Simeon Berry rated it liked it Shelves: Cindy Sherman does suburbia, essentially. Same pastel flesh, same aquarium light. Downcast or brooding anonymous figures, some with a sexually flat affect. Mostly shot from a distance.
I liked some of the photos a lot, but the crime scene renderings of dreamscapes got monotonous awfully quickly. Nov 18, Charli rated it it was amazing. My all time favorite photography book on the planet. GOD this guy had to be on drugs! I’m so jealous I didn’t come up with these photographs.
Jun 08, Zioluc rated it it was ok Shelves: Crewdson con numerosi modelli, set ricchi e luci articolate crea costruitissime scene oniriche: Solo pochissime foto hanno una potenza iconica tale da far soffermare lo sguardo.
I lunghi titoli di coda delle ultime pagine c Crewdson con numerosi modelli, set ricchi e luci articolate crea costruitissime scene oniriche: I lunghi titoli di coda delle ultime pagine comunicano solo dispiacere per lo spreco. Dec 03, Elaine Meszaros rated it it was amazing. Crewdson’s collection of photos are eerie, surreal and otherworldly. His mundane scenes of suburbia are turned into half-remembered nightmares.

A bright stream of light shoots from a gardening shed, a group of people heap flowers into a mound, a woman floats in her half submerged living room. Crewddson amazing is the amount of work spent creating these tableaus which often take up an entire city block. Jan 23, Steve rated it it was amazing. Stumbled upon this book in the library when looking for something else.
The witching hour
I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. Somehow Crewdson has managed do things with light–in the “real world”–that I thought could only be done fictionally by Edward Hopper. These photos are absolutely stunning and downright mesmerizing.
Jun 19, Davy rated it liked it Shelves: Not really my speed. This isn’t photography that speaks to me. I look at it the way I look at stills from a movie. Like they’re little parts of something else, something larger and more significant, and not in the medium that was originally intended. This style of photography is too contrived for me, and yet not contrived enough to be something else entirely.
Apr 15, Sunil rated it it was amazing. Project without motive -you figure it out. It’s a shame Moody’s introduction sucks; his introduction for The Collected Stories irritated me as well. May 22, Jim rated it it was amazing Shelves: Crewdson always amazes me with his work.
Aug 14, Jenna Brown rated it it was amazing. The lighting in this book is incredible! Aug 03, Dereck rated it it was amazing Shelves: Gregory Crewdson is one of my favorite photographers because the stuff he does is actually a set up and not a photo manipulation.
It’s amazing because you wonder how he does it all. Jan 19, Alissa rated it it was amazing. Some of the most expensive photos you’ll ever see.
