"His work over the last 30 years has revealed constant manoeuvrability combined with a desire to puncture received ideas about the way in wich we consume images and the way we treat people who claim to be able to transform experiences."

As everyone knows, Jeff Wall is one of these photographers that mantains a strong relation with painting. We could say that he kind of treats the frame as it were a canvas, though in his interviews he explains how he failed in the purpose of not being a photographer. He is one.
I was thinkin of him as a modern Giorgione. As the venetian artist, Wall seem to produce works that are particulatly difficult to analyze,even though i don't find it strictly necessary, and i could imagine him live in the same era,work exclusively for a private collector that jealaously never quits looking at his "own" photography.
I know his references mostly come from painting of the 19th century but i'd like to know what he thinks about Giorgione and the way he depicts the human being and his relation with nature.
