Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson – Paris

Jeff Wall himself selected the photographs for this exhibition, only choosing originally small works from his personal collection. The demanding constructions of the Vancouver photographer are both “cinematic” and “almost documentary”. Often in the form of light boxes, which have in part made his name, his compositions are sometimes also prints framed under glass and have done so for nearly twenty years.

At a time when he is probably one of the most conscientious and sought-after artists of our time, Wall exercises great freedom in his work.
