"Yellow Hallway"
by sabine7 / February 6, 2006


James Casebere builds architectural tabletop models and then photographs them. Casebere’s intent is that his works be seen as models, but the photographs distort the unreality. To add to the confusion, some of Casebere’s models are flooded. But the photos are not simply about the deception of the eye. Casebere brings a strong sense of social history to his work and some of the themes studied range from economics of Southern plantations to the modern-day prison systems. A global variety of interiors are covered by Casebere, from Sienese palazzi to Spanish baths.
