Gregory Crewdson, Untitled, 1998

From Sarah Urist Green at the Indianapolis Museum of Art:

A solitary man stands in a dark driveway holding a six-pack of beer, spellbound by a shaft of light. Gregory Crewdson has carefully composed each detail in this photograph, part of his series “Twilight,” in which various residents of an anonymous town are transfixed by seemingly paranormal forces at dusk.

Citing the films of Stephen Spielberg and David Lynch as influences, Crewdson acts as director to actors and a full production crew. His elaborate process results in a single picture, which he refers to as a “single-frame movie.” Here, small-town America is depicted as both familiar and strange, threatening and miraculous.
