Gregory Crewsdon is known for his disarming photographs of suburban life.
Now, Crewsdon takes that approach to new heights -- literally -- in this book of aerial images of everyday American subdivisions. Shot from a crane, these works seem innocent enough on the surface, but reveal, upon closer investigation, a world strangely out of balance. A woman plants neat rows of plants down the middle of the street, a mysterious circle appears in a backyard: these incidents, and others like them, are captured in realistic black and white. A fascinating and memorable book, and an important addition to the artist's ouvre.
