Abstract:

Jeff Wall is one of the leading international contemporary artists of the nineties. His work consists primarily of large photographic transparencies mounted in lightboxes, drawing on themes from art history, advertising, film, and documentary photography. These are constructed images, making use of sets and actors, which play on several layers of meaning. This book covers the full range of Wall's work and includes previously unseen photographs. Kerry Brougher's essay covers the entire period of development of Wall's work and discusses its relationship to historical and contemporary visual media.
