In another of Jeff Wall’s photo, we see a black man with his back facing the camera. He is in a brightly illuminated room with the ceiling full of light-bulbs. The room is cluttered and chaotic, and he is engrossed in his work. The art-piece exposes the black man’s private world, such that the viewer cannot ignore his presence, his strength, or his poverty.

Jeff Wall, La Chambre détruite (1978) est sa première photographie célèbre s’inspirant du tableau La Mort de Sardanapale, de Delacroix. À nous d’imaginer ce qu’il s’est passé, ce qui a pu conduire à cette destruction. Des indices sont laissés dans ce chaos, montrant l’intimité de la vie de cette femme. Seule chose intacte, la petite statuette de la danseuse dominant le carnage, ressemblant au roi dans la peinture de Delacroix.
