Gregory Crewdson’s Cinematic Process

The photographs of Gregory Crewdson have always fascinated me. Not only are they mysterious and compelling, their scope is unlike anything else ever seen in the art world. He works the way a filmmaker would—with an entire film crew's worth of production, not to mention the pre- and post-production requirements of a big budget Hollywood motion picture as well. Essentially Crewdson makes films and then simply photographs them one still at a time. This video, linked to via John Paul Caponigro’s blog, provides a detailed look at how he works, and why.
