Gregory Crewdson and Edward Hopper

Ive done some more research on Gregory Crewdson and found on his website some press reviews. Interiors magazine t
alked about that he always pulls the camera back at a distance. Any interior scenes are always looking in from another room or window. This is much the same as some of Edward Hopper's work. Its almost as if the viewer is spying on someone. If your spying on some one, your wondering what they're doing and in a lot of these examples you can see that they are caught in mid action. The difference with the second image is that it is very still. It is like a setting on stage. The camera angle is straight forward. I think that the key thing in all these images is that you are never truly inside them.
