This week’s New York Times Magazine has lengthy article detailing Jeff Wall’s contribution to the art of photography today.

The Luminist Arthur Lubow, New York Times, 2/25/07

“One thing that Wall knew for certain when he took up the profession in the late 1970s is that he would not become a photojournalistic hunter. Educated as an art historian, he aspired instead to make photographs that could be constructed and experienced the way paintings are.”
