5.0 out of 5 stars The Uncanny Encapsulated, 1 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Twilight: Photographs by Gregory Crewdson (Hardcover)
In Crewdson's Twilight series, he has managed to create a beautiful set of photographs that are so packed with narrative that each image tells a story in a single frame.

Many of the images, at first glance, appear to be fairly normal scenes from somewhere in the American Midwest. However, after looking at them again, you will see more and more detail. The deeper you comprehend each image, the more unsettling it becomes, and yet there is not anything in these images to shock or horrify. There is only a pervading sense of something else unexplained going on outside the confines of the photograph.

Crewdson has received praise and scorn in equal measure from people I know in the photography world. However, the latter has always seemed to me to be out of jealousy over the monumental effort (and finances) most of these images took to produce.

They are beautiful and very detailed. The most unsettling thing about them is that you don't really know why they make you feel unsettled.
