A Sudden Gust of Wind (after Hokusai)

The famous Canadian visual artist Jeff Wall collaborated with the independent photography book publishing company TBW Books to turn his large photograph A Sudden Gust of Wind (after Hokusai) into a book-object. When his work is hung on a wall, the ambient air flow gently moves the 98 unbound lightweight sheets of paper, recalling the original photograph of four people and a sheaf of papers swept away by the wind, a scene inspired by a woodcut by the Japanese artist Hokusai.
