12.0 Working with a film crew and combining multiple exposures, Gregory Crewdson builds pristine cinematic images that depict the psychological pathos of a suburban America where people anxiously stare into space seemingly searching for something they have lost or have yet to find. Crewdson, whose father was a psychoanalyst, remarks, “On some unconscious level, all my photographs project my own fears and desires.”
