With the works “Cathedral of the Pines” and “An Eclipse of Moths,” the photobook “Alone Street” combines two of Gregory Crewdson’s major series about the dull anguish of the small post-industrial American town.
Crewdson’s images—created through an elaborate, intricate process reminiscent of high-budget movie film sets involving actors, complicated gear and a production team—are carefully mastered orchestrations of an artificial space between truth and fiction in an America without glory. Everything looks perfect and motionless in his eery yet beautiful photographs, whose unique storytelling captures quiet melancholies, sorrows, vague hopes and other elusive feelings.
In addition to Crewdson’s two series, “Alone Street” also features an introduction by the writer Joyce Carol Oates, an interview with Crewdson by actor Cate Blanchett, and a selection of photographs and materials that allow a look behind the scenes of Crewdson’s work.
