Internationally celebrated photographer Gregory Crewdson who appeared in Aperture magazine issue no. 190 (and is a former Aperture Work Scholar ) recently debuted a new series of photographs entitled Sanctuary, opening at Gagosian Gallery in New York. In this new body of work, Crewdson photographs the decaying grandeur of film sets on the back lot of legendary Italian film studio Cinecitta, once the setting of numerous iconic films by filmmakers Federico Fellini and Roberto Rosellini. Captured with striking detail, these black and white images present a different take on ongoing themes of the cinematic, truth and fiction, in the Artist’s work. A catalog of the exhibition is available through Abrams books.
The Times Center presents, TimesTalks: Stories & Pictures: Gregory Crewdson, A.O. Scott and Noah Baumbach on Tuesday, October 5th. New York Times film critic A.O. Scott talks about storytelling with film and photography with Academy Award-nominated writer-director Noah Baumbach (“Greenberg”) and renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson (“Beneath the Roses,” “Sanctuary”).
