Conjurer and virtuoso, at first glance Vik Muniz's photographs surprise. The artist is internationally renowned for his work which focuses on day-to-day subjects: sewing thread, jam, chocolate, ketchup, dust, toys, etc. Inspired by current events, art history and important figures, his photographs are both familiar and enigmatic. Witty, lively, his works question the way in which visual information is constructed, presented and then perceived by an audience.
