"The work of Californian photographer Larry SULTAN (1946-2009) has become known as one of the central oeuvres of post-conceptual photography.

Since 1972, he and Los Angeles-based photographer Mike MANDEL have collaborated on numerous projects, including the controversial photo-essay Evidence. This series consists of revealing images plucked from government and corporate archives, such as police and fire departments, aerospace and engineering firms.
Later on, in 2004, SULTAN published his provocative series The Valley, an exposé of the adult film industry, in which the artist focused on the suburban neighborhoods and middle-class family homes that serve as pornographic sets.

Including images from these series and more, this catalogue - comparing the exhibitions in Kunstmuseum Bonn and SMAK, Gent (February until May 2015) - gives a comprehensive overview of SULTAN's career as a conceptual photographer." (publisher's note)

"Die retrospektive Publikation zur Ausstellung im Kunstmuseum Bonn und dem S.M.A.K. in Gent (Februar bis Mai 2015) über den 2009 verstorbenen, US-Amerikanischen Fotografen Larry SULTAN (*1946) zeigt sein Schaffen, das als wichtiger Teil im amerikanischen Kunstdiskurs zu zentralen Positionen der post-konzeptuellen Fotografie zählt.
Bereits 1977 lieferte Larry SULTAN zusammen mit Mike MANDEL durch die medienkritische Serie Evidence einen wichtigen Beitrag zur neueren Geschichte der Fotografie; Anfang 20000 sorgte er durch den Blick hinter die Kulissen der Pornoindustrie in seiner Serie The Valley erneut für großes Aufsehen." (Verlagstext)
