A handsome volume of the renowned photographer’s work from 2005 to 2021

Best known for his large-scale photographs, carefully constructed “near documentaries” created in collaboration with the subjects, Jeff Wall (b. 1946) is one of the most influential photographers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Often displayed as backlit color transparencies, Wall’s works have helped define the use of color and painterly sensibilities in contemporary art photography. This volume collects over fifteen years’ worth of new work from Jeff Wall in a lavish presentation that includes multiple gatefolds to better convey the scale of Wall’s work. As a collection of Wall’s most recent work, this volume will include numerous pieces that are as-yet unfamiliar to many of his fans. Chevrier’s essay deftly summarizes  the varied directions of Wall’s recent work and contextualizes them within the body of work that precedes this volume; de Duve’s and Campany’s wide-ranging conversations with the artist cover the role of performance and the effects of spontaneity and scale, respectively.
