Wolfgang Tillmans - Neue Welt - Taschen 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 the darkroom or works generated with a photocopier, he has pushed the photographic process to its outer limits in myriad ways.
For Neue Welt, Tillmans focuses his lens on the outside world—from London and Nottingham to Tierra del Fuego, Tasmania, Saudi Arabia, and Papua New Guinea. The result is a powerful and singular view of life today in diverse parts of the globe, 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.”
