Paris London Hong Kong is pleased to present a selection of photographs from Gregory Crewdson’s Hover series. The six silver gelatin prints were made in 1996-97 and depict staged interactions between fictional characters. These tableaus inhabit rural towns in America and illustrate uncanny situations created by the photographer.
Gregory Crewdson was born in 1962 in Brooklyn, New York. He is a graduate of SUNY Purchase and the Yale University School of Art, where he is now director of graduate studies in photography.
A retrospective of Crewdson’s work produced between 1985 and 2005 toured European museums from 2005 to 2008 and was accompanied by a fully illustrated book published by Hatje Cantz. The exhibition In a Lonely Place traveled to galleries and museums across Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, and New Zealand in 2013. The major monograph Gregory Crewdson was published by Rizzoli the same year.
Crewdson’s awards include the Skowhegan Medal for Photography, a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artists Fellowship, and the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship.
