Born in 1953 in Michigan, USA, James Casebere lives and works in New York. The work produced by this pioneer of staged photography is a poetic commentary on our society, never referring to a clearly identifiable reality. The artist works using models, imaginary and standardised reconstructions of familiar buildings that he painstakingly creates in his studio then uses as the basis for his photographs. His images can have a paradoxical effect, their visual beauty often arousing feelings of discomfort and emptiness.
