About

Jeff Wall’s work synthesizes the essentials of photography with elements from other art forms in a complex mode that he calls “cinematography.” His pictures range from classical reportage to elaborate constructions and montages traditionally identified with painting. Over the past 30 years, he has asserted the importance of the pictorial traditions of Modernism in the wake of challenges presented by conceptual art and the postmodern critiques of representation from the 1980s and 90s. Interested in the filmmaking of the postwar era, particularly the unconventional narrative structures of Neo-Realism, his best-known work involves constructing elaboratemis-en-scènes, which he photographs and then displays in wall-mountedlightboxesDrawing on the aesthetics of cinema, literature, and painting, Wall’s work has played a key role in the development of photographic imagery as an important medium in contemporary art.
