This landmark monograph is the most up-to-date and definitive book on the work of Jeff Wall (b.1946), the artist responsible for bringing photography to the forefront of contemporary art since the late 1970s.
His images employ the latest technology to create tableaux that dramatically evoke subjects ranging from Hollywood cinema to nineteenth-century history painting.

The book is a complete career retrospective that includes four essays by eminent art historians, interviews with and writings by the artist, and full-colour reproductions of all his artworks.

Current Research

The work, mainly using film as a gallery installation medium, reflects and forms a critique of dominant cultural forms as they are represented in cinema. The installations, like 'Peeping Tom' and 'Upside Down Touch of Evil' make direct reference to existing works in the cannon and 'The Pitch' reflects on the way the process of cinema production marginalises fundamental aspects of the culture by examining particularly the 'role' of the film extra. The work has received wide exhibition in galleries and film festivals, received critical review and won awards.
