    Joshua Mohr: IMG Your Imagination, Your Fingerprint



    When I was in grad school, a teacher told our workshop that if a published novel is 300 pages, the writer had to generate 1,200 along the way. I... Continue »

Staff Pick

Crewdson's filmic images strongly reference TV programs such as 'The Twilight Zone' and deal with fantasy and the paranormal in a creepy "your-town-here" American setting. His work is surreal but even more so that he involved the community of small town, Lee, MA. who donated their living rooms, pitched in to help create and even star in the photos.

Publisher Comments:

Although these series illustrate distinct subject matter, they share Crewdsonand#8217;s unique preoccupations and compelling aesthetic. and#8220;Firefliesand#8221; is the result of two solitary summer months spent photographing the fireflies that came alive at dusk each evening. and#8220;Beneath the Rosesand#8221; depicts the homes, streets, and forests of unnamed small towns, revealing emotionally charged moments in the lives of seemingly ordinary individuals. In and#8220;Sanctuary,and#8221; haunting images of the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittand#224; capture the beauty of the decaying film sets. Texts from curators of the exhibition and Crewdson himself offer fresh insight and examine the parallels between these seemingly disparate subjects.

Celebrating some of the artistand#8217;s greatest work, this volume is a must-have for any Crewdson fan and the perfect introduction to those discovering him for the first time.

Praise for Gregory Crewdson: In a Lonely Place:

and#8220;Whether one is exploring Crewdsonand#8217;s work for the first time, or revisiting his images, text from both the artist himself and the curators involved gives the reader a personal interaction with Crewdson that illustrates his passion for capturing the lives of others.and#8221;

Synopsis:

Twilight: in that zone between the certainty of day and fear of the dark, Gregory Crewdson sets his eerie, enigmatic photographs. 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 images suggests the bizarre yet beautiful surrealities behind deceptively familiar suburban facades.

Scheduled to accompany three simultaneous gallery exhibitions in Spring 2002 and a subsequent retrospective at Mass MoCA, this book chronicles the completion of the Twilight series, which Crewdson began in 1998. 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.
