From the Publisher
Known for his large-format transparencies and his cinematic imagery, Canadian artist Jeff Wall composes his photographic works in the manner of a film director, staging scenes and making meticulous use of technical aids such as videos, still photographs and computer technology to achieve the desired effect. His works, which initially appear to be fortuitous snapshots, can take months to prepare. While Wall often portrays subjects from everyday life, it is his understanding of classical composition that propels his work into the realm of fine art.
