2012 Commencement Speaker Gregory Crewdson Featured in the Globe

November 28, 2012

Photograph by Boston Globe’s JACKIE RICCIARDI, Gregory Crewdson (at his home near Great Barrington) is the subject of a new documentary.

Last year’s commencement speaker, Gregory Crewdson has been featured in two recent articles in The Boston Globe: one on him and the making of his film and another is a review of the actual film.

All photographers are drawn to the medium by a sense of isolation, of being alone,” said Crewdson. “The very act of holding a camera to your eye is an act of separating yourself from the world. It might sound like a weird paradox, but I feel like the whole process, from beginning to end, is sort of a lonely endeavor.”
