I found Gregory Crewdson's work to be the most interesting and aesthetically pleasing of all of the photographers that I've seen thus far in this class. Though his images are often eerie or even disturbing, they are also beautiful in a very alien fashion. The use of light is very strange but captures the eye almost immediately. If ever I were to be a photographer it would be in the vein of Gregory Crewdson (albeit at a much smaller scale). He pursues one of my favorite thing about art; the ability to capture reality, and then, surpass it.
