WOLFGANG TILLMANS 40th ANNIVERSARY
Wolfgang Tillmans has created a multitude of iconic works with an unmistakable visual language that has opened new paths and possibilities for photography and contemporary art.
From the first portraits of his friends to still lifes, nudes, travel photographs, landscapes and skies, passing through his abstract works.
In 2000 he became the first photographer, and the first non-British person, to receive the renowned Turner Prize.
His first volume of him for Taschen (1995) shows the young generation of the 1990s.
In the next volume, Burg (1998), Tillmans enriches his subject matter with a new collection of beautiful and iconic photographs.
In Truth Study center (2005) his images are condensed into even more subtle compositions that dialogue with completely abstract works.
Finally, Neue Welt (2012) documents Wolfgang Tillmans' travels around the world.
This Taschen 40th anniversary publication combines the best of all four books in one volume.
Wolfgang Tillmans himself has compiled this edition, partially redesigned it, added some recent work, and wrote a new foreword.
