Jeff Wall, a Canadian photographer, has aspired to create images that couldn’t be contained by books. His dramatically staged photographs are often exhibited in a true-to-life scale, backlit by fluorescent bulbs for an eye-catching glow. Yet Wall’s images have filled many coffee-table books since his rise in the 1980s, and Phaidon follows its 2002 Wall survey with another eponymous volume this autumn. Jeff Wall: Complete Edition showcases 250 photographs spanning his career, including the whimsical “A Sudden Gust of Wind (after Hokusai)” and grotesque “Dead Troops Talk”. And though the photos are obviously more engaging in their original form, these brilliant reproductions capture the photographer’s taste for beauty and grandeur.
