Canadian artist Jeff Wall is one of the most influential artists of the last quarter century. Wall's large-scale photographs are back-lit transparencies typically displayed, like billboard advertising, in light boxes. Although some of them look spontaneous like Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moments, " they are, in fact, completely contrived-almost cinematic in their staging and appearance. Moreover, his work marks a return to narrative and even allegory in recent, post-modern art. This is arguably the best publication on Wall's multi-faceted work, which has its roots in 1970's conceptual art. Richly illustrated with colour plates.
