JEFF WALL »JEFF WALL« – selected by PABLO ORTIZ MONASTERIO

»This book, edited by Editorial RM Mexico, is a rather strange publication. In Latin American countries, we tend to focus more on local material. Jeff Wall had a show of 16 of his very large prints at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. RM suggested doing a large book with all the pictures in the show. The editor’s idea was to keep the relationship between the size of each print in the show. A large format book would take account of the sizes of the prints and would be a novelty among the books on this famous Canadian artist. The typographic design was to be kept clean, neat and modern, thus echoing the pictures. Jeff Wall liked the project, and some months later we where surprised to see this big book, which is not heavy and which you can go through rather quickly. I would say this is a great, nicely designed, large but brief photographic book of works by a highly influential artist.«
