Photography

Groover, Jan (1943 - 2012)

Jan Groover earned recognition in the late 1970s with her quiet everyday life tableaus that not only questioned feminism and its impact on domesticity but also spatiality: ‘I had some wild concept that you could change space — which you can.’ The American photographer’s large-format images included a variety of mundane objects but also details of suburban street scenes. Jan Grover brought to postmodern photography, the staging of Renaissance masters as well as Giorgio Morandi’s coordinated researches, eager to reveal the secret lives of the inanimate.
