Focal Point

Crewdson's photographs are highly narrative, referencing film and theatrical productions by constructing elaborately staged events. In his early career, he built and photographed miniature dioramas, and his recent work is an actual-size expansion of this method. A single photograph might employ the work of an entire team of helpers and up to one month to produce.
