From the publisher: "Over the last 25 years James Casebere has utilized the combined influences of film, architecture, sculpture, and conceptual art, occasionally in large temporary installations, but primarily in the construction of table top models he then photographs in his studio. Casebere's early work examined myths of American identity, concentrating on images of main street, suburbia, home, and work. While consistently evoking the broad sweep of history, Casebere moved on to consider the subject matter of the American landscape and stereotypes of the American West. Since 1992 his work has focused upon such varied social spaces as prisons, schools, libraries, corridors, underground tunnels and sewers; spaces of isolation and circulation. His mysterious, beautiful, and often uncanny work has been exhibited and collected by museums worldwide. This monograph surveys the development and career of this groundbreaking artist."
