Jeff Wall

I read and enjoyed the article in the recent NY Times Sunday Magazine about Jeff Wall today. My education in contemporary photography is ongoing - art school unfortunately focused mostly on the distant past - so I always enjoy catching up. His work is interesting but I mostly appreciated the discussion about his evolution and process. Last night I was reading my most recent issue of Aperture and the contrast of the Times article was refreshing. Aperture puts a lot of effort into being over our heads and making us feel small. Or is that just me?

As I read the story I listed the other artists referenced so that I could later check out their work too. Why don't these artists have websites? It's surprising how few have their own.
