Jeff Wall: Catalogue Raisonné 2005–2021
The second volume of Jeff Wall’s catalogue raisonné features color reproductions and full documentation of seventy-three photographs taken by the artist between 2005 and 2021. From his pioneering use in the 1970s of backlit color transparencies to his intricately constructed scenes of enigmatic incidents from daily life, literature, and film, Wall has expanded the definition of the photograph, both as object and illusion.
The publication, edited by Gary Dufour, includes a new essay by Jean-François Chevrier, previously unpublished conversations with the artist by David Campany and Thierry de Duve, and updated documentation of exhibitions and literature on Wall’s oeuvre. The volume follows an earlier one, published in 2005 by Schaulager and Steidl, which covered works made between 1978 and 2004.
