California Photographer Larry Sultan Dies at 63

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Larry Sultan, a highly influential California photographer whose 1977 collaboration, "Evidence" — a book made up solely of pictures culled from vast industrial and government archives — became a watershed in the history of art photography, died on Sunday at his home in Greenbrae, Calif. He was 63.


Along with other artwork using vernacular photographs, like that of Michael Lesy in his book "Wisconsin Death Trip" and of Richard Prince, "Evidence," first shown at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, opened broad new avenues for photography that have since been explored by major museums and by artists like Christian Boltanski and Carrie Mae Weems.
