Jeffrey Wall (born 1946) is a Canadian artist best known for his large-scale back-lit cibachrome photographs and art history writing. Wall has been a key figure in Vancouver's art scene since the early-1970s. His photographic tableaux often take Vancouver's mixture of natural beauty, urban decay, and postmodern featurelessness as their backdrop. Wall's large-scale images and studied compositions are regarded as influential on the Düsseldorf group led by Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Candida Höfer.
