Beneath the RosesBook - 2008
Best known for his elaborately choreographed, large-scale photographs, Gregory Crewdson has become one of the most exciting and important artists working today. The images that comprise Crewdson's new series, "Beneath the Roses," take place in the homes, streets, and forests of unnamed small towns and portray emotionally charged moments of seemingly ordinary individuals caught in ambiguous and often disquieting situations. Both epic in scale and intimate in scope, these visually breathtaking photographs blur the distinctions between cinema and photography, reality and fantasy, what has happened and what is to come.With an essay by fiction writer Russell Banks, Beneath the Roses includes many never-before-seen photographs, as well as production stills, lighting charts, sketches, and architectural plans, that serve as a window into Crewdson's working process.
