Renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson, according to the International Center for Photography (ICP), is recognized for his elaborately staged scenes of small-town American life. Crewdson last shot Pittsfield in 2018, and before that in 2008. His work has been described as cinematic.

ICP further describes Crewdson's photographs as having dramatic and cinematic qualities and he often has an extensive support crew on-site for proper staging and lighting.

Beginning Wednesday, Crewdson will be staging a series of photoshoots around the city. The first round of shoots will be filmed through Sunday, Sept. 29th, and will include some road closures. His work is expected to continue into early to mid-October.
