Gregory Crewdson

Wow....when I saw he's work in the lecture, this is what first came to mind. He's work is incrediable atmospheric, and it's true that he's work has this 'incomplete sentence' structure, that allows the viewer to read it in a vairety of ways, and appears, both in quality, and narrative as thought a still from a movie scene...he's extensive use of mise-en-sence creates this a world of ambiguity, surreal almost, allowing the viewer to sift through the world, past the focul point to peice together what it is we are witnessing, like a frozen point in time, automatically invisoning a story behind it we try desperately to determine what it is that's occured, or about to, at the same time challenging our everday 'familiarities' of society, causing this immense sense of anxiety and frustration, which is quickly eased with the calmness of the photo's tonal uses...

He uses alot of figures in his workmostly situated within a suburban ameriac (which I find quite a quirky element already, quickly becoming an aquired , which appear like empty shells almost, expressionlesss, and although that is what the picture should portray as they are inanimate, but there appaear to be this almost 'prosphetic' appeal about them, that causes 'unease' and succesfully taps into our minds interpretation of  'uncanny'...
