"This first comprehensive overview of celebrated photographer Larry Sultan's work accompanies a major retrospective and features work from every significant series, including Homeland, his most recent body of work. This first comprehensive overview of celebrated photographer Larry Sultan's work accompanies a major retrospective and features work from every significant series, including: Evidence (1977), the conceptual project with Mike Mandel, which broke ground by demonstrating how context and sequence directly influence our interpretation of photographs; Pictures from Home (1982-92), a personal exploration of family and domesticity challenging larger notions of representation through use of contemporary pictures of Sultan's parents contrasted with movie stills from his childhood; The Valley (1998-2003), a deliberate inquiry into the subversion of the suburban homes commonly used by the porn industry as sets for films; and Homeland (2006-09), Sultan's most recent body of work, depicting day laborers posed in evocative California settings suggesting both dislocation and longing. Also featured are additional early collaborative works with Mandel, selected later career editorial work, and writings by and interviews with Sultan elucidating his creative process"-- Provided by publisher.
