The Perfect Day Date: Gregory Crewdson’s ‘Fireflies’ Carries A Bit Of Summer Magic

In Gregory Crewdson‘s gorgeous black-and-white series Fireflies turns his camera towards the daily flutter of fireflies during the summer of 1996 in Becket, Massachusetts. That hazy summer, the highly esteemed photographer ventured out during the evening twilight to observe and photograph fireflies’ mysterious mating ritual. At the end of August, he moved on to other projects. Ten years later, Crewdson revisited the series with a renewed interest, and began to print a total of 61 breathtaking images. 


For the first time, all 61 Fireflies photographs are currently on display at Wave Hill, arguably the most beautiful place in NYC. Wave Hill is a 28-acre public garden and cultural center in the Bronx overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. The Fireflies exhibition is appropriately running all summer long until August 24th, with many special events.


Crewdson's work has been included in many public collections, most notably the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
