In Jeff Wall’s “Marks of Indifference,” Wall discusses the relationship between photography and conceptual art, exploring the effect they had on each other.  Central to this essay is the fact that “photography cannot find alternatives to depiction, as could the other fine arts.  It is in the physical nature of the medium.”  (Wall, p. 32).
