Twilight

Twilight Cover

 

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.

Synopses & Reviews

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.
