Gregory Crewdson is a New Yorker Photographer born in 1962, famous for his surrealist images within elaborate scenes in homes and neighborhoods usually poorly lit. Crewdson initially had no intention of being a photographer, began a musical career in a punk rock band called The Speedies, a period in which he composed the song “Let Me Take Your Photo” without awareness of what the future had in store for him. In 2005, Hewlett Packard used the song to promote its digital cameras. In the mid eighties, Crewdson entered the University of New York to the take the degree in Photography and subsequently held a degree in Fine Arts at Yale, where he currently teaches. He has also published a number of books with his artistic work. Meet a selection of his work in our photogallery.
