Gregory Crewdson is one of the most internationally renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create technically brilliant and seductively colourful stagings of human loneliness and the abysses of society like a director. The enigmatic scenes raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction in a self-reflexive way, but can also be related to socio-political developments.
Crewdson’s large-format photos are preceded by months of planning; they are created with the help of up to hundreds of people from the casting, costume, technical and art departments. Production photos taken at the same time illustrate the highly elaborate design process right up to the comprehensive post-production stage, in which the final photographs are compiled from several shots.
The retrospective at the Albertina comprises a total of nine serially conceived groups of works created over the last three and a half decades.
