Over the course of more than two decades, Bruce Cratsley produced a personal and highly poetic body of work with the dominant theme being the mysteries of light and shadow. Cratsley’s images of inanimate objects, urban street scenes, and portraits of his friends and lovers, possess a metaphysical peculiarity reminiscent of Eugène Atget, André Kertész, or Cratsley’s mentor and friend, Lisette Model.

Cratsley’s work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris.
