Photographer Gregory Crewdson on Inspiration

The images, he says, come to him while swimming. He teaches at Yale University, and has a studio in New York; in the city, he swims in a pool. But Crewdson says he prefers to swim outside, in lakes and rivers. The world beyond the shore, he says, offers very little time for imagination, to get lost in unconscious thoughts — he finds that time in the water.

    Thanks for linking to that. I didn’t knew this photographer’s work, and I’m just..amazed. Seriously, his style just left a deep impression in me. Wow.

    P.S. – Given the frequency of new posts, I assume the absence of the MacBook left you with a strong abstinence syndrome. Welcome back to the web.
