Halloween Edition: Sternfeld v. Crewdson
"What the imagination can't conjure, reality delivers with a shrug."
I woke up thinking about this picture today — one of my favorites and, I suspect, one of yours too. My subconscious is dreaming about autumn and the Halloween holiday, which I don’t celebrate nearly as much as I should. And then I noticed that Stephen Leslie posted a new video to his excellent SHOW & TELL series — a closer look at photographers Joel Sternfeld and Gregory Crewdson. I could say more about what’s in store for you below, but I can’t say it any better than Stephen does, so I’ll keep things short and suggest you watch his insightful video essay when you have twenty minutes. Grab a coffee or tea, sit back, and enjoy.
I want to experiment with short-form posts like this from time to time and would love to hear from you. Do you like this format? Or would you prefer something more robust and long-form, like my previous post? Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts with me. You can reply directly to this email. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
