Semi-Contemporary Photographer Presentation - Christian Boltanski

Christian Boltanski is a French born artist working in many different mediums including photography, sculpture, painting, and installations. He was born in Paris in 1944. His artwork is most recognized for its themes of death/loss and memory. His work serves as as sort of memorial for the anonymous/those that have seemed to disappear. His artwork often includes more than one medium, ie. an installation including sculptural work as well as photographs. Below are some examples of some of his unique installations. They are often dark and somewhat disturbing, but intriguing at the same time.
