Overview
Life as Wolfgang sees it: Tillmans's latest project sets its sights on the world Over the period of more than two decades, Wolfgang Tillmans has explored the medium of photo-imaging with greater range than any other artist of his generation. From snapshots of his friends to abstract images made in a darkroom without a camera or works made with a photocopier, he has pushed the photographic process to its outer limits in myriad ways. For this collection of photos, his fourth book with TASCHEN, Tillmans turned away from the self-reflexive exploration of the photography medium that had occupied him for several years by focusing his lens on the outside world from London and Nottingham to Tierra del Fuego, Tasmania, Saudi Arabia, and Papua New Guinea. He describes this new phase simply as trying out what the camera can do for me, what I can do for it. The result is a powerful and singular view of life today in diverse parts of the world, seen from many angles. Says Tillmans, My travels are aimless as such, not looking for predetermined results, but hoping to find subject matter that in some way or other speaks about the time I m in. The book features a conversation between the artist and Beatrix Ruf, director of Kunsthalle Zurich. Text in English, French, and German "
