Gregory Crewdson réalise ces scènes de la vie américaine en les mettant totalement en scène, tout est ré-éclairé avec des techniques de cinéma, tout est conçut avant la photographie, parfois tout est construit spécialement pour une photographie, pour comprendre son processus créatif voici une interview intéressante où on voit comment il a fabriqué la photo au dessus :
In Beneath the Roses, anonymous townscape, forest clearings and broad, desolate streets are revealed as sites of mystery and wonder; similarity, ostensibly banal interiors become the staging grounds for strange human scenarios. Gregory Crewdson’s scenes are tangibly atmospheric: visually alluring and often deeply disquieting. Never anchored precisely in time or place,located in the dystopic landscape of the anxious American Imagination.

The timing draws forces to the image through the feeling of the unknown for the viewer…
