Biographie de l'auteur :

Petros Village is situated in central Malawi, about 50 kilometres north of the capital Lilongwe. Rural, but not remote, its inhabitants rely on a local market to sell tobacco and beans for cash, and grow maize as a staple food. The village takes its name from its chief, Petros James. In accordance with Chewa law he inherited the chieftainship not from his father, but from his uncle, his mother s brother. The son of his sister Neri will inherit the title from Petros and take his name, just as Petros did from his uncle. In February 2006, South Africa photographer Guy Tillim met Petros, who immediately invited him to spend a week on his farm, giving up his own bedroom for his guest. And it is precisely this that pervades the pictures that Tillim took during that week: a sacred sense of warm hospitality, which is first and foremost generosity of spirit, unthinkable in city life. Guy Tillim was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1962. He has received many awards for his work, including the 2005 Leica Oskar Barnack Award for his Joburg series documenting the life of Johannesburg s inner city residents He has had numerous exhibitions of his work, which has also been featured in several shows focusing on African art and photography, most recently at The Photographers Gallery, London, in August 2005; the International Center of Photography, New York, in March 2006; and Documenta 12, Kassel, in 2007 Petros Village was exhibited at the Museo di Roma in Trastevere during the 2006 edition of FotoGrafia, the international festival in Rome. Guy Tillim was recently awarded the first Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography by the Peabody Museum at Harvard University.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Bindung: gebunden, Leporello-Faltung Petros Village liegt in Malawi und das Dorf hat seinen Namen von seinem Chief Petros James. Von ihm wurde Guy Tillim bei einem Besuch spontan eingeladen bei ihm zu wohnen. In eindrucksvollen Porträts der Dorfbewohner und Alltagsszenen spiegelt sich die Wärme, Gastfreundschaft und Großzügigkeit der Bewohner Eigenschaften, die wir im städtischen Leben kaum noch kennen. Guy Tillim (geboren 1962 in Johannesburg) hat 7 Fotobücher veröffentlicht und wird international ausgestellt, zuletzt in der DaimlerCrysler Galerie (Berlin) und bei der Dokumenta 12 in Kassel 2007.
