"Beneath the Roses" contains the complete set of images from Gregory Crewdson's new series of photographs, made between 2003 and 2007. As in his earlier "Twilight" series, each elaborately choreographed image depicts an emotionally heightened moment in which something very important (although we never quite know what) seems to have happened or is about to happen. Like film stills from unmade movies, these photographs portray mysterious unknowable stories which are reduced to a single, static, highly charged image. This book also includes source materials, production photographs, lighting charts, sketches and architectural plans, which give the viewer a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of his elaborately staged photographs.

Crewdson provides you with forty-nine content rich photos, you have to provide everything else. Maybe the plates should have been loose in a box making it easier to create an ever changing scenario according to their sequence. I thought the small town setting ideal for these tableaux, the streets, houses and people seem to fit together and allow the viewer to focus on characters and their lives.
I was rather disappointed though with part of the book's production. The photos, thankfully suitable larger than those in Twilight, are only printed in 175dpi. These images are saturated with detail and texture and I would have thought a minimum of 200 or preferably 250dpi would be necessary to bring out their quality. So many of them have a long depth of field but also feature some small detail or frozen action that is important: a person in a car, the items on a bedside table or people seen through the window of a motel room.
Like Twilight the back of this book has chapters on Location and Soundstage, both have production shots (unfortunately not captioned) and drawings to show the amazing amount of work that goes into these photos. A look at the Production Credits also confirms this (and reinforces the movie connection) with Lighting, Best Boys, Gaffers, Key Grip, Special Effects, Prop Masters, Wardrobe, Transportation, Hair and Make-up, Casting, Catering, Legal and more. Oh yes, let's not forget Swamp Design by Buzz Gray, too.
Overall a remarkable book but if you are new to his work have a look at 'Gregory Crewdson 1985-2005' (ISBN 9783775716222) which includes twenty plates from Beneath the Roses.
Crewdson schafft also höchst kunstvolle Photos, die einen zum Nachdenken anregen, die einem Einblicke in etwas zeigen, was man vielleicht gar nicht sehen will - und wo man doch nicht wegschauen kann/will. Weil die Bilde einen fesseln, in einem nachwirken. Und einem nicht freundliche Visionen eines Amerika zeigen, das nichts Grandioses hat.
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
In his other books, people have complained that the images were not large enough. This book has larger images. The book contains 49 plates, which measure about 14.5" x 9.5"
The book also has photographs and sketches of a lot of the work that went into the final photographs, such as set design, lighting, props, and more.
Some of the photos in this book are also in the book "1985-2005", but they are larger in this book.
The book still doesn't come close to capturing how breathtaking his full-size 4' x 5' photographs are, but it does a better job than any of his other books. It would make a great addition to any photography book collection.
