Gregory Crewdson is by far one of our favorite photographers. He doesn't so much take photos, but instead creates them from the ground up. According to NPR, Crewdson likes his photos to evoke a feeling of being somewhat undone - it is up to the viewer to imagine what comes before and after the single moment that has been captured within the broader narrative arc that has been constructed. Beauty is of the utmost importance to Crewdson's photos, he says, but after that comes feelings of anxiety, isolation, and fear that are essential to his work. Absolutely spot on, we think.
