Lot Essay

‘The whole reason I make these pictures is for those moments of clarity. For that single moment, everything seems to make sense in my world. And I think we all look for that in our lives, because our lives are generally filled with chaos and confusion and disorder and complication. And we all strive to find moments of clarity, of order’ (G. Crewdson, quoted in A. Loh, ‘In Conversation. Interview with photographer Gregory Crewdson’, in The American Reader, http://theamericanreader.com/interview-with-photographer-gregory-crewdson/).
