Gregory Crewdson is known for his surreal images of American landscapes and domestic spaces. Each photograph undergoes a meticulous production process, where every element of the composition is carefully orchestrated. Set in locations that look familiar enough without being identifiable, Crewdson works with a director of photography and a cinematic lighting team to achieve a spectral quality in his images that is evocative of dreams or even nightmares. Untitled shows the scene of an unlikely event, where a house has mysteriously appeared in the middle of the street, surrounded by the debris of the displacement. Firefighters and policemen assess the situation, while some neighbors look on with curiosity from their yards.
