Synopsis: Trained as an art historian, Jeff Wall has been working for over 25 years on his expansive light boxes of staged scenes. These backlit photographic transparencies are set in cases generally associated with advertising display; but, instead of advertisements, Wall fills them with moments of everyday life that usually go unacknowledged: workers restoring a historic building, a janitor mopping a floor, a kitchen flooded with sunlight, the side of a house in the prairies. Carefully staged and meticulously composed, often over and over again until the perfect image has been achieved, Wall's images have explored a wide range of social and political themes, including urban violence, racism, poverty, gender and class conflicts, history, memory, and representation. Like the great French realist painters of the 19th century, Wall is, in the words of Charles Baudelaire, "a painter of modern life."

About the Author: Jeff Wall was born in 1946 in Vancouver, Canada, where he still lives and works. Though he has practiced photography since the 60s, his work has been most widely exhibited in the last two decades. Recent solo shows have been mounted in Frankfurt, Montreal, Basel, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., and this past summer he was included in the Documenta for the fourth time. The subject of many monographs, he is also the author of numerous critical texts.
