The American artist Christopher Williams has for the past 35 years been deconstructing and demystifying photography. How? Creating photographs… Through his work, Williams investigates photography as the defining medium of modernism.
Williams collaborates with technicians, models and set designers to create immaculate photographs and to create commercial, industrial and instructional photography.
His photographs are elements at play in a larger system including architecture, exhibition design, books, posters, videos, vitrines and signage that investigates the stage sets of the art world and the publicity structures on which they rely.
