Jeff Wall (b.1946) adopts the nineteenth-century poet Baudelaire’s famous description of one of his contemporaries as ‘a painter of modern life’ to describe his own very different work: huge transparencies mounted on to light boxes that diffuse a brilliant glow of white light evenly through his photographs of contemporary urban scenes and ‘constructed’ social situations.
