Gregory Crewdson: in a Lonely Place

Overview

Although these series illustrate distinct subject matter, they share Crewdson’s unique preoccupations and compelling aesthetic. “Fireflies” is the result of two solitary summer months spent photographing the fireflies that came alive at dusk each evening. “Beneath the Roses” depicts the homes, streets, and forests of unnamed small towns, revealing emotionally charged moments in the lives of seemingly ordinary individuals.

Overview

Although these series illustrate distinct subject matter, they share Crewdson’s unique preoccupations and compelling aesthetic. “Fireflies” is the result of two solitary summer months spent photographing the fireflies that came alive at dusk each evening. “Beneath the Roses” depicts the homes, streets, and forests of unnamed small towns, revealing emotionally charged moments in the lives of seemingly ordinary individuals. In “Sanctuary,” haunting images of the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittà capture the beauty of the decaying film sets. Texts from curators of the exhibition and Crewdson himself offer fresh insight and examine the parallels between these seemingly disparate subjects.

Celebrating some of the artist’s greatest work, this volume is a must-have for any Crewdson fan and the perfect introduction to those discovering him for the first time.

Praise for Gregory Crewdson: In a Lonely Place:

“Whether one is exploring Crewdson’s work for the first time, or revisiting his images, text from both the artist himself and the curators involved gives the reader a personal interaction with Crewdson that illustrates his passion for capturing the lives of others.”

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This companion to a European traveling exhibition of the works of Crewdson (art, Yale Univ.; Twilight) collects three distinct series, each exploring a variety of lonely places, and an essay in which London-based gallery director Burnett briefly analyzes each grouping. In the first series, "Beneath the Roses," an odd illumination pervades the pieces, hinting at something unnatural. Readers will easily invent their own narratives for the scenes in the photographs. Next, Crewdson's "Sanctuary" series plays the ruins of Mussolini's Cinecittà film studios against the outskirts of modern Rome. In soft grays, he explores the alleyways, scaffolding, and crumbling facades that linger from the 1930s. As the photographer winds through the abandoned movie set, viewers may feel trapped in a twilight zone. "Sanctuary" ends on a note of relief: Crewdson reaches the gates of Cinecittà, and his audience is released. In the final series, "Fireflies," he examines the activity and frenetic pace of an otherwise solitary, peaceful summer night. VERDICT An excellent survey of Crewdson's recent work, accentuating the key themes of his artistic approach. Of interest to modern art aficionados and students as well as casual readers.—Rachael Dreyer, American Heritage Ctr., Univ. of Wyoming, Laramie
