With Twilight, a series of 40 elaborately-staged photographs taken between 1998 and 2002, Gregory Crewdson arrived at the epic, filmic approach which has come to define his instantly recognisable images.

Twilight explores liminal moments in small town America. Everyday settings become paranormal as night draws and bizarre details arise. Intentionally ambiguous, each photograph resembles a climatic film noir still while eluding any concrete plot, place or character.
In the second print, a woman gazes out to the street from a drab and empty living room. She shares the space with minimal furnishings including a lamp – still wrapped in cellophane – and an ominous black hook. On the window hovers a perfect circle, drawn in dust.

"Perfect circles have been an ongoing motif. They have a certain visual quality that works well in pictures, but I also like them in terms of what they signify in our lives and the ways we think. The woman in this picture has drawn a circle on the window that separates her interior space from a larger world that she peers out toward.“
