Gregory Crewdson: An Eclipse of Moths
Published by Aperture, this limited-edition volume documents Gregory Crewdson’s 2018–19 photographic series An Eclipse of Moths, in which the artist depicts locales of removed isolation and anchors his figures in relation to a source of light. Positioning the viewer above, in a semi bird’s-eye vantage point, each of the sixteen large-scale panoramic photographs presents a exterior scene from a postindustrial urban landscape, including a taxi depot, a traveling carnival lot, an abandoned factory complex, defunct bars and diners, and vacant storefronts. The book features a text by musician Jeff Tweedy, who composed a musical score in connection to the series.
