Separated at birth?

"Atlas V rocket, launched from Cape Canaveral," Simon Norfolk, All rights reserved

"Untitled," Gregory Crewdson, All rights reserved

Two famous contemporary photographers fascinated by similar imagery. Simon Norfolk: a politically charged hyper-realist, particularly interested in the technology of modern warfare. And Gregory Crewdson: a creator of obsessively detailed psychological fantasies that evoke anxiety & dread..

Norfolk's lightbeam explodes upward. Crewdson's descends from the sky.

What does it all MEAN???
