Jeff Wall at Tate Modern

I’ve just been to London for New Year.

There’s a great exhibition of Jeff Wall (Canadian photographer). Giant pictures, some of which have taken over a hundred separate pictures put together. Mostly very ‘composed’. It struck me how much painters and photographers refer back to others’ work.

Like poetry that is full of references to the classics, photos can be full of references to other works of art.

More of that another time.

The thing I wanted to say was … it made me think about doing some photos … just for me probably, but all with a theme of ‘outside looking in’

Maybe shots through a shop window … or into a family’s front room …. to illustrate the way that so many people are outsiders … sometimes through their own choice, but often not.

Financially, emotionally … whatever.
