Gregory Crewdson

I stumbled across a book by this guy when I was in Munich. There were a few other books I had my eye on in the store, but when I saw this guy's stuff, everything else went out the window and he became my new favourite. His use of cinematographic lighting and sets is remarkable. He's a genius! I also love his use of visual narrative and his scenes are almost like entire plots unfolding. He plays on paranormal scenes in surreal American environments. Inspired by the likes of William Eggleston, Walker Evans and Jeff Wall... I can't find an official site but here are a couple links and here, and if you can, get his book 'Gregory Crewdson 1985-2005'... It's amazing!
