Gregory Crewdson—In a Lonely Place
Hatje Cantz Verlag / Ostfildern, Germany
Emptiness, loneliness, stagnation and paranoia—Gregory Crewdson’s immaculately composed, cryptic photographs turn the American dream, locked somewhere between utter normality and complete nightmare, inside out. Teeming with Hollywood references, Crewdson’s work continues the tradition of staged photography. The accompanying book In a »Lonely Place«, published by Hatje Cantz Verlag, echoes Crewdson’s pictures in its design. It became a bestseller almost as soon as it hit the shelves.
