Jeff Wall

Jeff Wall is a “visual artist“, a Canadian photographer from the city of Vancouver, born in 1946. Best known for his large-scale back-lit cibachrome photographs and art history writing. Wall has been a key figure in Vancouver’s art scene since the early-1970s. He just wanted to have a “nice” photograph and he made a lot of recreations.

This is some of his work I really liked. A photograph based on Hokusai’s painting “Travelers Caught in a Sudden breeze at Ejiri”. Hokusai lived from 1760 to 1849, before the invention of cinema.
