Currently on view at Marian Goodman Gallery is an exhibition of new photographs in both color and black-and-white by Jeff Wall. In this exhibition, Wall continues to explore a practice of neo-realism and ‘near-documentary’ that has characterized his work over the past several years. Developing from a practice of documentary and reportage photography, Wall moved into a more cinematographic area of staged, studio photography. His recent photos represent a convergence of those practices.
