Canadian photographer Jeff Wall is one of the most innovative Remanufactured ink and toner cartridges an influential artist of modern times. He is best known for his 'Conceptual Photography.' Some label his unique style of image production as 'Anti-photography.' Wall merges innumerable images through digital manipulation to create great storytelling masterpieces. One such most famous cinematographic photograph of Jeff is "A Sudden Gust of Wind."

Jeff Wall created "A Sudden Gust of Wind" in 1993. This 'Cibachrome Trasparency' was one of his earliest digital montages and measures 87-1/4 x 148-1/2 inches. This colored splendor is displayed in a light box. It is a reconstruction of a woodcut "A Gust of Wind in Ejiri" (1831) by Japanese artist and printmaker Katsushika Hokusai. Hokusai's original print shows a curving path near a lake leading to Mount Fiji. Whereas, Wall's version depicts flat brown fields on either sides of a canal with a row of telegraph poles in the far background. The scene in the picture features four figures frozen in surprise on a dirt track, in response to the sudden gush of wind (just like in Hokusai's image). The photo depicts two men clutching to the hats on their heads, while the third stares up to where his hat is being blown away. On the left corner, a woman stands startled by the sudden force of wind, which has thrown her scarf over her face and blown up her bunch of papers into the air. The background also shows two trees forced to bend sideways by the force of wind, while its dead leaves go fluttering into the air and mingle with the flying papers. Wall has managed to beautifully capture a visual impression of the wind. Although the image is brilliant, some critics felt the characters in it seem out of place due to their attire.

Jeff's approach to photography is like that of a director to his film. He produces photographs with the use of lighting, camera angles, and stage. It took him over a year to compose "A Sudden Gust of Wind." He shot various pictures in the outskirts, mostly Cranberry farm, near Vancouver over a period, using hired actors and waiting for the right weather. He then digitally processed and compiled more than hundred images to achieve a narrative effect in his finished photograph. Jeff Wall's sharp-witted images display the depth and the impact of any nineteenth century painting. His unique images are even termed as 'painting with film.' His creative vision and the use of photography have helped reaffirm cinematographic photography's place as a medium of Fine Art. Jeff Wall's works have earned him immense repute in the contemporary art world.
