Gregory Crewdson’s Cathedral of the Pines is currently on show at The Photographer’s Gallery. Taking more than two years to produce and shoot, involving months of casting, storyboarding and having an entire team working on lighting, wardrobe, make up and more, “while still meticulously staged, these portraits seem more revealing and intimate in their evocation of individual souls who seem lost and adrift, despite the trappings of home and material success. ”
The artist uses long exposures, with models having to hold a pose for 90 minutes. “Crewdson situates his disconsolate subjects in familiar settings, yet their cryptic actions—standing still in the snow, or nude on a riverbank—hint at invisible challenges. Precisely what these challenges are, and what fate awaits these anonymous figures, are left to the viewer’s imagination.”
This exhibition is on until 08 October 2016. Make sure to head over there!
