Did You Know?

Gregory Crewdson:I feel very strongly that every artist has one central story to tell. The struggle is to tell and re-tell that story over and over again in visual form... and try to challenge that story. But at the core that story remains the same. It's like the defining story of who you are.See more »

Great behind the scenes look into Credson's work, 19 June 2013
Author: Adam Carboni from United States

This doc is a quiet view into Gregory Crewdson's 8-year photography project, "Beneath the Roses." The film does a great job of weaving on-set footage of lighting, posing, and directing, with moments from Crewdson's interviews and personal history.

I found it intriguing to see all the production value that goes into just one of his photos, and every time the film cuts to the finished shot, I couldn't help but be amazed by the "still life" quality of each one.

Crewdson's photos have a deep, self-reflective quality that, at times, is haunting to become lost in. This documentary shows the man, and the crews, behind these fabulous works of art.
