Here are five pictures by Jeff Wall, selected and arranged by the artist on the occasion of the inaugural exhibition of the new Canada House Gallery.

Photo - Boy falls from treeJeff Wall was born in Vancouver, where he lives and works, in 1946. He has exhibited his photographs internationally for the past 35 years. His pictures, in both black and white and colour, are usually large in scale and done in collaboration with performers. He calls them ‘cinematographic’. He is considered to be one of the artists who has led the way in emphasizing the affinities between photography, painting, and cinema. His work is included in many major public and private collections, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Tate Modern, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He taught art in universities in Canada for twenty-five years, and his critical writing has been collected and published in several languages. He has been awarded several prizes, including the Hasselblad Award for photography in 2002 and the Roswitha Haftmann Prize in 2003.
