Jeff Wall - After "Invisible Man" by Ralph Ellison, the Prologue

Jeff Wall: Photographs 1978-2004:

Ralph Ellison's 1952 novel Invisible Man centres on a black man who, during a street riot, falls into a forgotten room in the cellar of a large apartment building in New York and decides to stay there, living hidden away. The novel begins with a description of the protagonist's subterranean home, emphasising the ceiling covered with 1,369 illegally connected light bulbs.
