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.
The first print sets a car – driver dazed, door and boot wide open – in the middle of a quiet residential street. An eerie glow emanates from a shed surrounded by bushes. Lit, curtainless windows suggest onlookers, even if none can be seen.
“I’m revisiting this picture on the 25th Anniversary of Twilight because, as my first street scene of this kind, it has become very important in my iconography and visual language. Its significance in the context of my larger body of work is very striking in retrospect.”
