Gregory Crewdson – Cathedral of the Pines
23rd June 2017 - 8th October 2017£4,00
This is the first Uk exhibition of Cathedral of the Pines, a new body of work by the acclaimed American artist Gregory Crewdson, and it is also the first time The Photographers’ Gallery has devoted all three of its gallery spaces to one artist.
With this series, produced between 2013-2014, Crewdson returns to the uncanny suburban subjects, and explores more natural environments.
In images that recall nineteenth-century American and European paintings, Crewdson photographs figures posing within the small rural town of Becket, Massachusetts, and its vast surrounding forests, including the actual trail from which the series takes its title. Interior scenes charged with ambiguous narratives probe tensions between human connection and separation, intimacy and isolation.
