beautiful (and weird) photography

I've been a fan of photographer Gregory Crewdson for a good few years now; a number of his photos have popped up on the blog over the years, including the blog header which held the fort during my absence (the naked couple on the dirty mattress). 

Last week I finally got to see his work up close. It was fantastic!

I'll be writing about it in a bit more detail tomorrow. For now please enjoy a few pieces of his most recent work.

That's pretty special. I'm a philistine, I know nothing of art. Have you been to an exhibition of his work or something?

His work is fantastic. Saw his work at an exhibition, more tomorrow.

Saw some of his stuff in a newspaper colour supplement. Fucking fantastic, and very unnerving.

There are echoes of Edward Hopper's depression era paintings. Much ennui and melancholy.

I'm completely bummed out now.

Let's get back to the seagulls.
