Photographer to Discuss Current Trends in Photography

'Untitled (Sunday Roast)' by Gregory Crewdson, winter 2005.

STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Photographer Gregory Crewdson will discuss current trends in photography and his own work at the Norman Rockwell Museum on Saturday, March 27, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Similar to Norman Rockwell's works, many of Crewdson's images are orchestrated in and around the Berkshires, where the Crewdson family has long had a small cabin in the woods. Both Pittsfield and North Adams have been used as backgrounds for his large-scale, elaborately constructed photographs.

He has attracted international acclaim through his work, in which ordinary people and places are often surreally lit, with a suggestion of unease within or beyond the picture frame.

Crewdson's deliberate directorial process is being explored in conjunction with the museum's current exhibition "Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera," which examines Rockwell's own relationship with photography.

Admission to the event is $10, $7 for museum members; a reception with the artist will follow. Because of limited seating, advance reservations are recommended by calling 413-298-4100, Ext. 221.

Crewdson's talk is the latest in a series of discussions with contemporary photographers and videographers. The next is with Jonathan Doster on, Saturday, April 24, 5:30 p.m. $10, $7 Museum members.

General public admission to museum is $15 for adults, $13.50 for seniors, $10 for college students, and free for visitors 18 and under (five per adult). For more information: www.nrm.org or call toll free 1-877-861-2299.
