Book Description

10 Sep 2012
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 fascinating conversation between the artist and Beatrix Ruf, director of Kunsthalle Zurich.

Product Description

About the Author

The photographer: Wolfgang Tillmans was born in Remscheid, Germany in 1968 and studied at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and Design. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work, whilst appearing to capture the immediacy of the moment and character of the subject, also examines the dynamics of photographic representation. From the outset he ignored the traditional separation of art exhibited in a gallery from images and ideas conveyed through other forms of publication, giving equal weight to both. His expansive floor to ceiling installations feature images of subcultures and political movements, as well as portraits, landscapes, still-lives and abstract imagery varying in scale from postcard- to wall-sized prints. His work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1996 and Tate Britain, London, in a major retrospective in 2003. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2000.

3.0 out of 5 stars A controversial book 14 Mar 2013
By nemomel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After 10 years of experimental abstract photography in his lab, he has come back to concrete photography with a digital camera. The cover picture, the stars mixed with digital noises clearly represents his current state; concrete after abstract. So far, so good...

I truly respect his challenge to expand the possibility of the art photography with digital technology, however, I'm not sure if it was a right move. The first thing I noticed is the change in media, from film to digital. The ambivalent feeling was one of the most significant "texture" in his concrete film pictures, but it's completely gone now. I don't know if it was his intention or not, but I certainly miss it. I can still see his extraordinary sharp artistic vision with his strict ethical and political attitude in many pictures, though.

Also, his concept, "look over the current world" and "randomness" make this book rather distracted, not deconstructed. Sorry, Flickr is much more interesting if I just want to look over the world randomly. This book should have been a bit more deliberately deconstructed, in my opinion.

The long interview in this book is a must read for anyone who concerns the art photography. Very insightful. This book certainly did not impress me enough, but it did not loose my respect to him at all, and I'm looking forward to seeing his next book. Good 3 stars.

I bought this book for a research project in my arts class. I am very impressed with Tilman's work and he has inspired my own photography in a lot of ways. Super satisfied with the art and the price

3.0 out of 5 stars Neue Welt 23 Jan 2013
By The Art Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
‎"What if we were to consider the photographic act not as one of indexical, impersonal capture but instead as one of drawing--a method by which humans have for millennia tried to relate to, understand, and possess a capricious world via representation's sympathetic magic."

--Lucas Blalock on Wolfgang Tillmans' "Neue Welt"
