    It's about time. Anyone lucky enough to own Wall prints will be revising their insurance coverage. It's strong, provocative work.

    Although his work has been attracting high prices for a while.

    He is also a cornerstone of the Art photography community in Canada - apparently a great teacher as well.

    There's plenty of good photographers in Canada, and it's a shame that so few manage to crack through the international market. Jeff Wall can certainly be applauded for that. Though I hope it will help others gain some notoriety, too.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    And this today from the CBC regarding Arnaud Maggs.
