DESCRIPTION

Co-sponsored by Anagram

Gregory Crewdson, whose photographs were the subject of a one-person exhibition at SITE Santa Fe in 2001, will return to discuss his current exhibition featured as part of SITE 20/20, entitled Fireflies. In its simplicity and directness, this series is a departure from the large-scale photographs for which Crewdson is known. It was created in 1996, when Crewdson was living alone in his family’s cabin in Becket, Massachusetts. That summer, he ventured out each evening with camera in hand to observe the fireflies’ mysterious mating ritual. At the end of August, he moved on to other projects. Ten years later, he revisited the series with renewed interest, and began to print a total of 61 images. A selection of the black-and-white prints was exhibited in 2006 with a limited-edition catalogue, and exhibited in its entirety in 2014 at Wave Hill, The Bronx, New York.
