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

Jeff Wall : the crooked path by Jeff Wall( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
"The photography of Jeff Wall (born 1946) is consciously and profoundly saturated in the social: in the Vancouver art community from which he first emerged, fully formed, in the late 1970s; in the racial and gender politics of our times, which he analyses with marvelous clarity in his huge photographic light boxes that declare an equal status with painting through their scale and their carefully plotted depth and grandeur; in the art history pantheon that informs his staged compositions, from Hokusai to Velásquez and Manet; and in his influence on at least two generations of photographers, most notably the Düsseldorf school (Andreas Gursky once cited Wall as "a great model for me"). Jeff Wall: The Crooked Path examines the cultural context for Wall's tremendous achievement in photography. Wall himself has chosen 25 of his own photographs, taken between the late 1970s and the present, and has constellated them among the visionary company his work keeps, alongside reproductions of works by Marcel Duchamp, Diane Arbus, Eugene Atget, Wols, Andreas Gursky, David Claerbout, Thomas Struth, Frank Stella, Robert Smithson, Rodney Graham, Ian Wallace, Lawrence Wiener and R.W. Fassbinder. The Crooked Path orients Wall's photography across ten themed chapters, each of which is prefaced with an interview with Wall by Hans De Wolf. Also included are testimonies and essays by fellow artists and art historians, such as Luc Tuymans, Lawrence Weiner, Michael Fried and David Campany."--Amazon website

He has exhibited throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and his awards include a Hnatyshyn Foundation Visual Arts Award. This richly illustrated volume is the first full-length book devoted to Ken Lum's work in more than nine years. In this time, his work has shifted to large permanent public installations, among them his fourth permanent public installation opening in 2010 in the Netherlands. Ken Lum accompanies a large-scale exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery that celebrates Lum's entire career and showcases aspects of his work--such as the mazes created for Documenta 11 and the Istanbul Biennal--that have never been seen before in North America."--Publisher's website
