about: Drive-By Shootings : David Bradford purchase book

 Originally working for over 10 years as an art director in a busy New York advertising agency, David decided to go freelance primarily as an illustrator. Initially using a camera for reference photos for his drawings, he soon fell in love with the medium of photography. To make some extra spending money, David started driving taxis, but  he soon realised he had discovered that he was in the perfect ‘vehicle’ to witness and shoot all the daily mis-en-scenes of one of the worlds most fascinating cities. From there he started using his taxi as a 'gallery on wheels' and soon met publishers and media people who loved his work.

 

 All these captivating 'film noir' street photographs were taken over a 10 year period on black & white film and culminated in the best selling photo book - Drive-By Shootings.

Dream House by Gregory Cre…

He portrays the isolation and darkness found in the mediocrity of suburban life through a surreal sense of theatre in a style reminiscent of a high budget Hollywood production. Shot in an abandoned Maine home, Crewdson employs a fleet of celebrity faces, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman, to play the roles of his desperate and lonesome characters.
