Gregory Crewdson

I, like others, am intrigued by Gregory Crewdson. I think what captivates my attention the most about Crewdson is the amount of money he spends on his work. In the movie we watched in class it was mentioned that one of his pieces cost one million dollars to produce. I do think he takes amazing pictures but for that cost I do not think they are striking enough. It is true that he can capture a mood that is heavy and sad. Looking at the picture I have attached here, it is gloomy and depressing. It is a picture that I can't look at for too long without feeling dark and anxious.
