Aperture is pleased to present this very special limited-edition artwork, consisting of a clothbound copy of Gregory Crewdson’s monograph Cathedral of the Pines, and a special-edition photograph, The Backyard, 2013. Both are encased in a specially designed clamshell box.

Cathedral of the Pines presents Gregory Crewdson’s first new body of work in over five years. The series marks a return to Crewdson’s classic style of storytelling via the single image, using light and color to create newly intimate, psychologically charged imagery.This body of work marks a time of transition for the artist, and a retreat from New York to a remote home and studio in western Massachusetts—a period of time during which Crewdson chose to remain socially withdrawn, instead committing to daily, long-distance, open-water swims and cross-country skiing on wooded paths. Cathedral of the Pines is named after one of these trails, deep in the forests of Becket, Massachusetts, the site where he found the inspiration to make these new pictures. It was there that he felt darkness lift, experienced a reconnection with his artistic process, and moved into a period of renewal and intense creative productivity.
