Gregory Crewdson, born in 1962, is an American photographer. True to his creative flair, Crewdson was inspired to take photographs after performing the song ‘Let Me Take Your Photo’ in a punk band that he was part of in his youth. He is now well-known in the art world, and his photographs of small, American towns can be distinguished by their peculiarities, in both content and style. In combining pieces of both theatre and visual art, Crewdson’s photographs depict still subjects within ordinary scenes, yet the lighting used portrays a dream-like and cinematic composition. The subjects are often set within American neighbourhoods, sat still around a table or eerily looking out towards suburban houses.
