Gregoary Crewdson works around the similar theme of movie still images as does Jeff Wall, Philip Lorac Dicrocia and Cindy Sherman. His style i ive just realised is similar to my last post of Denis Darzacq. Crewdson’s work plays around the idea of the still bridge between movie and still life, capturing the pinicle moments and enforcing them with fantasy, the observed or just surreal. My two favorite images of his play on the theme of childhood stories and phenomenon, for instance the stalk grown out of the ground reaching right up to the sky with someone climbing on it is a pastiche of jack and the bean stalk.
