Jeff Wall (Contemporary Artists (Phaidon))
by Jeff Wall
Publisher's Description
Jeff Wall has become one of the primary figures in the establishment of photography in contemporary art. His images are presented as transparencies in gigantic light boxes, combining elements of cinema and sculpture with photography. The scenes themselves are orchestrated versions of everyday people and situations, and reflect a certain wry criticism of life in a media-saturated world. The texts in this gorgeous retrospective are by Arielle Poulenc, Thierry de Duve, Boris Groys, and Wall himself, as well as the artist's selections from the writings of Franz Kafka and Blaise Pascal.
