Crewdson’s work is eerie and cinematic. Generally set in small-town America, Crewdson’s photographs often exhibit an element of the uncanny. Crewdson has credited classic films such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind with having influenced his dramatic style. The artist’s photographs are often staged in a manner similar to motion picture productions, with Crewdson employing the same techniques and equipment of major cinematographers to capture his elaborate scenes. Crewdson’s oeuvre is characterised by his ambiguous narratives and a blurring of the lines between reality and fiction, beauty and decay.

Gregory Crewdson’s work is held in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, New York. Recent exhibitions of the artist’s work have included Cathedral of the Pines at Gagosian Gallery, New York (2016); Sanctuary at White Cube Mason’s Yard, London (2010-2011); Beneath the Roses at Galerie Daniel Templon, Paris (2009); and Solo Exhibition at Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles (2008).

Gregory Crewdson lives and works in New York City, NY.
