    Gregory Crewdson’s highly elaborate and labor-intensive process is the focus of the 20 pictures offered in Selected Production Stills. The creation of Crewdson’s cinematic photographs requires an entire production team, not limited to lighting specialists, wardrobe designers, and multiple camera assistants. From eerie suburban neighborhoods and abandoned streets to ominous campgrounds and wayward youth, these images included in this lot provide a rare, behind-the-scenes view into various shoots done on-location or soundstages.
