Gregory Crewdson

Gregory Crewdson is an American photographer who is best known for his elaborately staged, surreal scenes from American homes and neighbourhoods. His work has elements of Spielberg and David Lynch with strong narrative filmic images full of tension and beautiful lighting. There's no one better in my book.

Fauxreel interviewed

Dan Bergeron aka Fauxreel has been creating photography based street art for more than a decade. His work by its sheer scale and positioning challenges regular advertising and often portrays people rarely represented in mainstream media (i.e. homeless people in his "The Unaddressed" series). On the Unurth website he gives a rare interview.
