Brief Encounters

Just watched the documentary ‘Brief Encounters’ following Gregory Credwson during the production of his photographs. I remember attending an exhibition showcasing some of his huge prints years ago, but it wasn’t till I’ve seen the documentary that I realised the obsessive attention to detail on the making of his pictures. The setup resembles film more than photography, everything is staged and nothing is left to chance. Gregory has these moments in his head, and the photographic process is entirely about fabricating them so that they can be captured on a film medium (large format camera).

Not your usual way of practising photography, and I found it fascinating. Check out the documentary and his work if you can.

The suggestion comes from Strobist, which needs no introduction 😉
