Jeff Wall

Revised edition

The work of Canadian artist Jeff Wall has established photography at the forefront of contemporary art. He deploys state-of-the-art film and computer technology while invoking the composition, scale and subject matter of painters such as Velazquez, Goya and Manet.

His constructed images employ the latest sophisticated technology in the creation of compelling tableaux which are evocative of subjec
