Style Icons: Male »Greg Crewdson

greg crewdsonGreg Crewdson creates gorgeous images of familiar settings rocked by staged, off kilter dramatics. You could call it realistic surrealism. Each image looks like a still from an art film about the secrets lurking just below in the surface of small town, USA. Either on a sound stage at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art or on location in nearby towns, every detail of his shots is elaborately staged. It's a unique way to work as a photographer, working with a crew to create a scene, rather than capturing one. I could look at his images forever with my imagination racing.

Both in this video and this site he talks about his process. While no exhibitions of his work are scheduled in the near future, several of his books are available and you can see much of it online too.
