Gregory Crewdson is an American photographer best known for staging cinematic scenes of suburban American towns. His work is unique, mystifying and melancholic, sometimes disturbing and almost claustrophobically calm.
In an interview with, he showed the ‘making of’ one of his famous photographs called Untitled (Brief Encounter) and his thoughts on the image. Crewdson said that ‘the picture’s residing on this thing that almost doesn’t exist, like this moment in between moments.’

His movie-like productions have seen months of advance planning and preparing, with Crewdson verifying the placement of each tiny detail, from a wet sponge left on a countertop to a crumpled fleece blanket discarded beside a couch. He shoots with large-format cameras and the image creation requires more than 40 crew members familiar with motion-picture equipment and techniques. Please enjoy a small selection of his works:
