Video for the Weekend 33

Gregory Crewdson (Brooklyn, New York 1962) doesn't so much take pictures as make them. Some critics say the photographer and artist is reinventing the genre by using film techniques to stage pictures.
It's the moment between then and now that interests Crewdson. He likes that photography limits him to choose only one moment to convey a narrative arc.
Each photo is polished and technically perfect, but still somewhat undone.
The viewer must imagine what comes before and after.
