Gregory Crewdson's 'In A Lonely Place'

Gregory Crewdson, the artist known for exploring "the claustrophobic limbo and abyss of spiritual repression that is the typical suburb" has released a new book to accompany his traveling European exhibit. "In A Lonely Place" exemplifies his ability to capture moments of raw, unbridled emotion. Whether one is exploring Crewdson's work for the first time, or revisiting his images, text from both the artist himself and the curators involved gives the reader a personal interaction with Crewdson that illustrates his passion for capturing the lives of others. No one puts it better than Crewdson himself, who stated, "My own work comes back again and again to the American Dream and its darker inverse." For an early preview of his book, check out the slideshow below.
