"Really, Tillmans is a novelist who tells tales of what it is like to be alive right here, right now, and this feels wonderful."
The Village Voice, New York
"Les plus beaux livres d'art, et les plus originaux, c'est souvent la maison Taschen qui les édites."
"There is so much life in Tillmans' photos because they show spectacular subject matter in an unspectacular way."
Der Spiegel, Hamburg

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.From Library Journal :
These two new works are united by the fact that each of the twentysomething artists earned a place in this fall's round-up of best new photographers at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In a book devoid of text (even the copyright information is on the back cover), Billingham presents an extended album of his family's life in the projects near Birmingham, England. The brutally frank snapshots center on Ray, Richard's alcholic father, Liz, his chainsmoking mother, and his brother Jason. Mostly disturbing yet sometimes beautiful, the haunting images seem to carry the burden of documentation, declaring their existence to be a necessary proof. Tillmans, a German photographer who has lived and worked in Hamburg, London, and New York intermingles without distinction his art images and his fashion and portrait work for magazines. This catalog for a one person show at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg collects a diverse selection of his images. Sequenced by Tillmans, the catalog places a special emphasis on the landscapes and still lifes that have often been overlooked by critics who have labeled Tillmans the documentarian of an urban Generation X. The three short essays offer some of the most cogent writing on the photographer to date. Both books belong in larger libraries collecting contemporary artists' works.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
