JAMES CASEBERE, The spatial uncanny
James Casebere, born in Michigan in 1953, exponent of that Pictures Generation that in the mid-70s formed a new visual vocabulary, investigates the deceptive and illusory nature of the photographic medium, considered the instrument par excellence for the reproduction of reality objective. Casebere challenges our ability to see the world around us, and using artifice, a characteristic feature of his figurative discourse, he creates images of natural and urban landscapes, starting from a small scale model that he realizes, with extreme detail, in his studio.
