Gregory Crewdson: Cathedral of the Pines

Top American contemporary photographer, Gregory Crewdson brings his latest work, Cathedral of the Pines, to Britain with a large scale exhibition at London’s Photographers’ Gallery from 23 June. Set in a deep Massachusetts wood, along the Cathedral of the Pines ski trail (hence the title), Crewdson’s photographs lay bare, sometimes literally, small town America. His combination of documentary storytelling, cinematic staging and painterly influences has unnerving results – for we don’t know what’s real, unreal or happening next.

Gregory Crewdson: Cathedral of the Pines, 23 June to 8 October 2017, The Photographers’ Gallery, 16-18 Ramilles Street, London, W1F 7LW, 020 7087 9300 tpg.org.uk
