Jeff Wall

Last week I had a good opportunity to gain more understanding of postmodernist photography. I visited the MCA and saw the exhibition of contemporary Canadian photographer Jeff Wall. Many of the images were displayed as large scale lightboxes, said to be inspired by bus shelter advertising.

His photography seems journalistic at a first glance, but after reading more about this artist I learned images such as The  Destroyed Room were staged realities.

I enjoy this photographer’s work as I find it  rich in detail and content. Check out the exhibition here 🙂 www.mca.com.au/exhibition/jeff-wall-photographs/
