Up against the wall: four images by Jeff Wall.




Earlier this year, I visited the SFMoMA with some friends. The main purpose of our visit was to check out the Olafur Eliason exhibit. While this had some interesting parts, mainly a room that made the world appear black and white, I was more intrigued by the work of Jeff Wall.

His photos were large transparencies backlit by huge lightboxes. Most images had their own wall. They looked glorious. While the images themselves are quite striking, the presentation really made them come alive. I'd love to exhibit my pictures in this manner.

I loved this exhibit. My favorite was actually the suburban landscape with the domestic dispute underway on a lawn.
