Gregory Crewdson’s Photo Alchemy

Crewdson’s carefully constructed tableaus generate more questions than answers:

• A man sits in a garage, the door gaping open to a dark and rainy sky. A car is parked haphazardly in the rain, its headlights focused on the man. He is surrounded by lawn turf, rolls and mounds of it. Half-buried in the turf is a rake. His face is weary, a little sad, maybe even disconsolate.

One thought on “Gregory Crewdson

  1. I love this! I’m not really sure what is going on, but of course that leaves you to make something up. Why is there a lawn in the garage? why is the car running? did the man bury something? I love when things are left up to the imagination like this.
