An Eclipse of Moths extends Gregory Crewdson’s obsessive exploration of the small-town, postindustrial American landscape. Each of these sixteen, never-before-published images is composed at a cinematic scale with the artist’s signature auteurial care.
Downed streetlights, abandoned baby carriages, and decommissioned carnival rides set the scene for a cast of classic Crewdsonian characters—full of equal parts yearning and ennui. This collection of images is offered in a limited- edition, slipcased volume, sumptuously produced at a scale that offers an immersive experience of each of these carefully crafted scenes.
