Inspiration: Gregory Crewdson

Whilst presenting my One Frame Movie photos at the Open Show in Lausanne this week, I mentioned Gregory Crewdson. I first became aware of his work in 2008 via David Hobby’s blog and have admired his process ever since. He’s technically more of a film director than a photographer, albeit that the result of his work is one single image per shoot. That’s where I gained the inspiration for the name of my series, and I continue to re-visit his work to gain further inspiration for my future photography. I doubt that I’ll ever work on the scale that he does, but I can hope to achieve the surreality of some of his final pieces.
