"In a Lonely Place" by Gregory Crewdson @ CCP

If you haven’t seen the Gregory Crewdson’s show In a Lonely Place yet, hurry as it ends this weekend. Crewdson is best known for his highly constructed images which resemble film noir stills as seen in his series Beneath the roses 2003-2008. I’m a big fan of that series because of the way it conveys drama and mystery. Also, it’d be every photographer’s dream (or maybe just one of mine) to have the ability to turn a whole street into a set for a photo shoot and have access to a large crew just for lighting. The production involved behind each photo is undeniably impressive. The detail in these large format photos is amazing. Crewdson takes staged photography to another level.
