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.

Format: Hardcover
While living in New York City for the first semsester of my junior year in art school, I was assigned to take a look at a gallery exhibition of Jeff Wall. I had never heard of him before, and when I saw the huge Duratrans pieces, I was floored. I instantly loved Wall's aesthetic and historical sensibilities. I ordered this book over the other two available because it was the most recently published. The essays are wonderfully insightful, and I'm glad they were included. I have only one complaint about this otherwise marvelous book-- there are less than 40 plates altogether. Of course I knew this when I bought it, but Wall's work is of the kind where one simply wants to see more.
By far my favorite plates are the ones that could be categorized as "near-documentary". They are seemingly real, spontaneous compositions-- yet when one does a double-take, it's obvious that it was set up entirely. Jeff Wall is alone in his mastery of this genre.
Obviously, the length of the book isn't something that I should take any stars off of. So it gets a 5-star rating. I suppose I'll have to purchase another Wall book now!
